Renowned architect Henry N. Cobb passed away this week. Cobb, known for buildings such as Boston’s John Hancock Tower, was 93 years old. His death was confirmed by Ian Bader, a partner at their architecture firm Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, according to the New York Times.
In 1955, Cobb was one of three co-founders—along with I.M. Pei and Eason H. Leonard—of New York-based Pei, Cobb, Freed & Partners. The firm’s name changed from I.M. Pei & Associates to Pei, Cobb, Freed & Partners in 1989. Cobb, who had a 70-year career in architecture, graduated from Harvard University School of Design.
