It is truly a sad and difficult time and Eric’s passing is a tremendous personal loss to his family, Civic Arts and the worldwide architecture community. We appreciate the kind expressions of condolence and patience during this time.
CivicArts are committed to ensuring that Eric’s legacy will be honored and the team that Eric built, nurtured and mentored will carry on. The company is forged from a strong team of committed and talented professionals, most of whom have been at his side for more than a decade. As a result Eric’s unique vision will be manifest as the current projects continue through to completion, planned projects are green-lighted and the business continues to pursue opportunities to grow in keeping with Eric’s Marketplace of Ideas design philosophy.
Eric’s family, friends and colleagues will come together in the fall to celebrate his life and extraordinary legacy. Planning of this celebration is underway and we will share details once they are finalized. In the meantime the team at Civic Arts will honour Eric’s memory by continuing his work and working together to realize his vision.
