Having been designated a member of this austere group; Lomax exhibited his work in an exhibition at the MODAA Gallery at Studio Pali Fekete architects in celebration of his architectural style and contributions. Lomax’s work is regarded as an important contribution to the architectural fabric of Southern California and his name is associated with such luminaries from the architecture field as: Frank Gehry, Craig Ellwood, Ray Kappe, Cesar Pelli, Anthony Lumsden, John Lautner, Daniiel Dworsky, Leroy Miller, James Pulliam and Bernard Zimmerman. The Rouse Residence was also photographed by famed architectural photographer Julius Shulman.
