Anne Griswold Tyng, the architectural big thinker who taught at Penn for several decades, has died, according to the Architect's Newspaper. Tyng, an alluringly gentle and charismatic force, was of course also known for her close professional and personal association with Louis I. Kahn. The Inquirer's obituary is here.

The Pennsylvania Gazette wrote of the Kahns and Tyngs in a fascinating article here.
