Raimund Abraham, a visiting faculty member at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, died early Thursday in a car accident in Downtown. He gave a lecture at SCI-Arc on Wednesday evening, hours before his death at age 76. The school announced the news, and in a statement director Eric Owen Moss said, "Earlier in the evening Raimund delivered a powerful lecture at SCI-Arc, re-stating his enduring love for architecture and his willingness to fight for the design discourse as he defined it. That unique and powerful Abraham advocacy for architecture is irreplaceable." Abraham's car and an empty Metro bus collided at 5th and Main streets.
