Houston looses a great Architect. John Zemanek, FAIA (1921-2016)

A couple of weeks ago, I heard on the news that John left us. I had the pleasure to work with him photographing his last house. On the few occasions that I visited him I got to know him but not enough. I learned by capturing his work that he was a great architect. I heard through my friends that had him as a professor at University of Houston that he was an excellent and challenging teacher. But above all, I know by the little I spoke with him over mint tea that he was an amazing human being.

We will miss you John but your legacy remains with us.

Que en paz descanses...

Gaia III House by John Zemanek.
