The AIA Europe Board of Directors recently learned that long-time AIA Europe member and third Chapter president, Lewis Gilbert Koerner, AIA, regrettably passed away last August. Lewis was a resident of Rome, Italy and one of the founders and principals in the OK Design Group.
AIA Europe founder and 2017 AIA National President, Thomas Vonier, FAIA, remembers him fondly; "He was generous, funny, and a good supporter of the Chapter, finding sponsors for us and attending many of the meetings throughout the the nineties. He organized an excellent meeting in Rome."
In addition to his family, friends and office, we know that Lewis' memory will live on in the Chapter.
