In Memoriam, Mark C. Keiser

It is with deep sorrow that we mourn the loss of our colleague and friend, Mark Keiser. Mark died August 19, 2014 as a result of a traffic accident.

“Mark was an intensely kind, thoughtful and caring person who loved the gift of being an architect. We are stunned at his loss, and we send our prayers to his family. With humor and wit, he brought a vision of elegant design, and saw significance and meaning in every detail. He pushed us to do better, and not to compromise. In remembering him, we will endeavor to live up to his high standard.”
– Bill Wilson, FAIA, Principal

A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, August 29, 2014 at 10am at Trinity Church, in Boston, MA.

    Mark had recently been volunteering on the building Committee of the Gibson House Museum in Back Bay, and had agreed to be nominated for the board. We were grateful for his expertise and were looking forward to his deeper involvement. We offer our heartfelt condolences.

    I am so sorry to read this. I met Mark in Boston in the late 80’s. He attended my husband’s architecture class at the BAC and also a drawing class we taught together at the BAC. We became immediate friends. He was so playful, talented and full of joy. My husband and I both are graduates of RISD, so when Mark applied my husband wrote a recommendation for him.
    My sincere condolences to all who worked with Mark and to his family as well. I am sure you will never forget him, as I have not to this day.
