    what a character he was. his work is tremendous and the way he immersed himself in architecture is, to say the least, inspiring. i appreciated his candor- his disclosure period was one for the ages. RIP.

    My prayers go out to his family and friends. His seven decades of service is appreciated. He has left his mark in Boston, an addition to the Boston Public Library, an office and retail space at 500 Boylston Street in the Back Bay, and International Place a cluster of tall buildings behind Rowe's Wharf.

    I was going to post this also mac, guess you beat me to it...

    A very interesting personality who led a very interesting life. Oh, and he made some damn fine buildings too (and a few not-so-fine).

    I should be so lucky. Condolences to his 40+ year partner and other loved ones. 98 is a good run, though.
