It is with great sadness that the partners of Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Architects (ZGF) announce the passing of Founding Design Partner Robert J. Frasca, FAIA, on January 3 in Portland, Oregon at the age of 84 from complications of chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Since its beginnings in Portland in 1966 as a regional practice, ZGF has grown to be one of the premier architectural firms in the world with more than 600 staff members across six offices in the U.S. and Canada. The firm is known for design excellence in a variety of building types, from health care to universities to projects for the U.S. State Department. In 1991, with a portfolio of distinguished work designed under Frasca’s direction, ZGF was honored with the AIA Architecture Firm Award.
