Please join us at the Center for Architecture on November 5, 6:00-8:00pm in collectively remembering friend and colleague Stephen Kliment, FAIA, who passed away on September 10. In addition to a long career in architecture practice, criticism, teaching, and editing, he was the editorial director of Oculus and e-Oculus. In remembrance, e-Oculus will be publishing a tribute issue on November 5 featuring reminiscences by many of Kliment’s friends, colleagues, and students. A printout of the tribute will be available at the memorial, and a feature in the Winter issue of Oculus will highlight some of the many anecdotes and memories.
