It with great sadness that I let you know that a member of the committee, Prof Karel Bakker passed away last night.
He was one of the biggest supporters of the event and offered great input throughout.
Even during his illness, he would constantly call to check what was needed and he reviewed many abstracts and papers as a member of the review panel.
Early in the process, he joined myself and Karen Eicker on the architectural schools road show.
At a time when the event seemed almost impossible and there was little support for it, Karel's support never wavered.
He sent me a message just last week, expressing his admiration for what we achieved with UIA 2014.
I have know Karel for many years and he was also my PhD supervisor over 10 years ago.
My condolences to his wife and children as well as to his Boukunde family at the University of Pretoria, where he was the head of department.
May his soul rest in peace.
