Howard Elkus, who co-founded the Boston-based architecture firm Elkus Manfredi Architects, has passed away. According to the Elkus Manfredi website, which made the announcement today, “information regarding conveying condolences and participating in remembrances is forthcoming.”

Elkus studied at Harvard (M.Arch with Distinction) and Stanford (B.S. Mechanical Engineering) and worked at The Architects Collaborative (TAC) in Cambridge before co-founding Elkus Manfredi Architects in 1988.

The firm grew extensively over the years and its global portfolio of projects currently ranges from workplace design to master planning. Elkus’s work frequently focused on large-scale, mixed-use developments that operate on the urban scale. His most recent major projects include Al Maryah Central in Abu Dhabi, the Miami Worldcenter, and 20 Hudson Yards, the large retail podium at New York’s Hudson Yards development.
