Remembering Detlef Mertins, Professor of Architecture (1954-2011)
Our extraordinary colleague Professor Detlef Mertins passed away January 13, 2011. His contributions to PennDesign, to us collectively and individually, and to the fields of architectural history and theory are of immense and lasting value. The loss of his presence among us is immeasurable.
PennDesign is planning The Detlef Mertins Fellowship that commemorates and celebrates the leadership and scholarship of Detlef Mertins. Friends, colleagues and former students who wish to contribute to this fellowship to honor Prof. Mertins may contact email@example.com.
A memorial service is planned for the spring.
