(Virtual) Memorial for Professor Katavolos

November 10, 2020 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM


Our highly regarded and long-serving Pratt Institute faculty member William Katavolos, BID ‘49, sadly passed away last week at the age of 96. Architect, designer, and teacher, Katavolos’s career at the School of Architecture began in the 1970s. He co-directed Pratt’s Center for Experimental Structures alongside award-winning Professor Haresh Lalvani.

Said our Pratt Institute President Frances Bronet, “Bill was an extraordinary thinker, and I had the great privilege of learning of his big ideas for the future of architecture and education, we will miss his perpetual enthusiasm for learning, for making, and for teaching.”

On behalf of Dean Harriet Harriss and Dean Anita Cooney we would like to warmly welcome you to a Zoom Memorial for Professor William Katavolos hosted by School of Architecture and School of Design on Tuesday, November 10th from 6 to 7:30 PM. The memorial can also be viewed via the School of Architecture Events YouTube Channel.
