On behalf of yowLAB and its members, many of whom had the privilege of studying under Marco;
The sadness this news brings us is matched only by the fondness of the memories we are left with.
Marco Frascari, 1945-2013
Director – Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism
Professor Marco Frascari passed away on Sunday, June 2nd at the age of 68. He is the founder of our PhD program and he is remembered at the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism as a visionary director and an inspiring teacher. He personified the notion of Vita Beata and material imagination. His generous spirit animated our building for eight magical years. He is and will be missed.
