As news of architect Bing Thom’s unexpected death rippled across Vancouver, Canada and the globe Tuesday, a long-time colleague remembered him as an extraordinary figure in the world of architecture.
The firm posted the news of Thom’s death on its website early Tuesday, including a message from Thom’s wife of more than 50 years, Bonnie: “Bing believed architecture transcends the building, to shine its light onto its whole surroundings. He was so happy his architects also pursue this adventure of ‘building beyond buildings.’”
