I had the pleasure and privilege of knowing Alan Schwartzman and benefiting from his wisdom and good cheer.
I knew him first when I was a very junior apprentice in the office of his elder kinsman Daniel Schwartzman.
After I moved (happily) away from the drafting board to a career in architectural journalism, I was privileged to know Alan in his partnership with the creative architects Lewis Davis and Sam Brody (now lost to us), whom I had also come to know well. My daughter also knew and respected Alan during the few years she worked for the David Brody Bond firm.
He was a truly fine person who richly deserved to live his final years in the magnificent city of Paris.
