It is with heavy hearts that Measured mourns architect Geoffrey Massey, who died December 2nd at the age of 96. Massey leaves an incredible legacy in Vancouver:
“As a Vancouver city councillor with Art Phillips and TEAM in 1972, he was part of a political movement that put a stop to freeways and redeveloped the south side of False Creek from industrial to residential. He was even one of the early owners, architects and developers at Whistler in the 1960s.”
– John Mackie, Vancouver Sun
Massey’s passing hits close to home for Measured. Principal Clinton Cuddington sits on the Arthur Erickson Foundation Board, advocating for respectful stewardship of Erickson’s physical works, including his buildings and landscapes. Many of these projects were completed with Massey as Erickson’s partner – the two architects worked together in the 1960s, their firm designing iconic projects such as the Simon Fraser University and the MacMillan Bloedel Building downtown.
He will be missed.
