From the Architect’s Newspaper we learn that LA architect George Yu died Saturday, just one day before an exhibition featuring his Honda Advanced Design Center closed at SCI-Arc. The SCI-Arc faculty member, who worked at Morphosis before opening George Yu Architects, had suffered a long bout with cancer and was only 42.

Thom Mayne and his wife, Carole, have called for the community to contribute to the Yu children’s college fund. A letter from them is posted on Land+Living, who also has information on how to donate.
