Another Sad Day For LA Architecture

We’re still reeling from the tragic death of Stephen Kanner, and now we have learned that two more of LA’s brightest lights, Elaine Jones and John Chase, have also died. Jones was A. Quincy Jones’ widow, and Chase was the urban designer for the City of West Hollywood. Both were valuable advocates for architecture and good friends. We’re still gathering information and will get it to you as soon as we can.

    John was a colleague in the world of public sector design advocacy and I loved his outspokenness, his irreverence, his joy and pleasure in observing the built world, and his support for all aspects of design. He urged us all to dream and imagine, and applauded even our smallest achievements. I will really miss him.
