Mr. Izenour: GSFA

Steven Izenour, a lecturer in architecture at GSFA, died on August 21, at the age of 61.

Mr. Izenour worked with the firm of Venturi Scott Brown & Associates. He received his bachelors of architecture from Penn in 1965 and a masters from Yale in 1969. He had been a lecturer in GSFA since 1972. Mr. Izenour was the coauthor of the landmark study Learning From Las Vegas, a book that changed the way people thought about the architecture of the commercial strip. Among his designs are the Children's Garden in Camden and the George D. Widener Memorial Treehouse at the Philadelphia Zoo. Mr. Izenour also developed an innovative lighting system used in the Sainsbury Wing of the National Gallery in London that gave the effect of the paintings having been restored.

He is survived by his wife, Elisabeth; daughters Ann Stuart and Tessa Izenour; a son, John; and his parents George and Hildegard Izenour.
