Jon Jerde, the founder of Los Angeles-based Jerde Partnership, has died. Jerde was elevated to the AIA's College of Fellows in 1990, and received a B.Arch from the University of Southern California. Jerde was retired from the firm, according to a spokesperson. Los Angeles Times reports that Jerde died at home earlier today at the age of 75.
In 2011, ARCHITECT visited Jerde and his firm at their headquarters on the Venice Beach promenade. Here are some of the images from that visit.
