Husband, father, educator, and architect George Yu has passed away after a long and painful battle with cancer. George is survived by his wife, Carole, and his two daughters, Elena and Dara.
You may remember him from his excellent presentation at the Future Salon: Style is out of style I named my little writeup.
We have taped his Repeat as Needed Future Salon and you can watch the video on the Internet Archive.
My little hope is that someone will bring back his Blow Up art Installation (check out the second video to get an impression). For me it personifies his creativity, warmth and playfulness. Miss him already.
I am glad that the video is there, as it is covering his work in his
own words. Hope this is O.K. with the family, otherwise let me know.
As they write on Archinect:
... but for now please consider making contributions to the educational trust recently established for Elena and Dara ...
We have never charged for the Future Salon. So if you ever got something out of it, consider to give the equivalent of a movie ticket with popcorn.
Will let you know once I have details.
