Architect and art collector Bill Stern died Friday, of pancreatic cancer. He was 66. Stern moved to Houston in 1976, immediately finding a place in the booming city’s cultural crust. A principal of Stern and Bucek Architects, he was founding editor of Rice Design Alliance’s Cite magazine, on the board of the Menil Collection, a longtime adjunct associate professor of architectural history at the University of Houston, and and had just been voted a Lifetime Achievement award by the Houston chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Lisa Gray has an updated obituary in today’s Houston Chronicle.
