In memoriam: Raimund Abraham

Raimund Abraham, an Austrian architect famous for his visionary designs and for a New York landmark-building died in a car accident in Los Angeles yesterday.

In the US, Abraham is most well-known for designing a 23-story skyscraper on NYCity’s 52nd Street in a spot only 7-meters wide. The building houses the Austrian Cultural Forum, Austria’s cultural embassy in the United States.
