It is with immense sadness we share this news, that our dear friend Paul Katz, President of Kohn Pederson and Fox (KPF) architects, passed away suddenly on November 20 in New York, from septic shock following a brief but valiant battle with cancer of which he became aware a month ago.

This statement was released to the company from Joshua Ridley, Chief Executive Officer:
“Paul was one of the most inspiring, erudite and humble people that I have met. I wanted to share this with you as you know how much Paul has impacted not only me and our company, but everyone who shared time with him, including those at our event ‘Shaping Sydney’s Future’ Sydney seminar on October 7th.
The loss for his family and all who knew this wonderful man personally must be devastating beyond words. He deserves to be remembered. To know him was to champion him.”
