Modernist Architect Natalie de Blois, 1921-2013
I was saddened to learn today of the death of natalie de Blois, an architect who spent her career designing some of the best modernist buildings of the era for SOM.
She was also the founding organizer of the Chicago Women in Architecture group, and an architectural educator. Her legacy is amazing, yet often not acknowledged. A fantastic interview with her from 2004 is here.
I promise my next post will not be an obit!
