I learned this morning the sad news that Steve Izenour died of a heart attack in Vermont last night [21 August 2001]. Steve was partner of Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown at VSBA in Philadelphia, and co-author with them of the book Learning from Las Vegas.
Steven Izenour and Wildwood
Steven Izenour is the reason I went to Wildwood, New Jersey 18 September 2000. I hadn't been to Wildwood in over 20 years, back when my family and friends vacationed there, and Izenour's 1997-98 study with University of Pennsylvania and Yale University architecture students of the beach resort's "Doo-Wop" architecture prompted me to digitally record Wildwood's architecture for Quondam's collection. As a tribute to Steven Izenour, Quondam's images of Wildwood are now displayed within EPICENTRAL.
IZENOUR Steven A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, September 6, 2001, at 2 p.m., at Irvine Auditorium, 34th and Spruce Streets, Philadelphia. In lieu of flowers or gifts, contributions may be made in his name to The Wagner Free Institute of Science, 1700 W. Montgomery Ave., Phila., PA 19121 (215) 763-6529 or to The Tenney Memorial Library, PO Box 85, Newbury, VT 05051 (802) 866-5539.
If you count the number of nights between 14 July 2001, when there was a tribute to the architecture of Venturi, Scott Brown & Associates at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and 29 September 2001, when there was a tribute to the architecture of Venturi, Scott Brown & Associates at the New University in NYC, the center of these nights is right around 10pm 21 August 2001, when Steven Izenour died.
