Rising star gone too soon - Randall Stout dies at 56

Randall Stout, an architect who worked with Frank Gehry and SOM before establishing his own practice - Randall Stout Architects - in 1996 died 11 July at his home in Los Angeles. The cause was renal cancer according to a family member. Born in Tennessee, Stout was a rising star who designed signature cultural facilities, most notably the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, Virginia, a project that put him on the architectural map and established him as a considerable design talent.

Among Stout’s other notable projects are the Hunter Museum of American Art in Chattanooga Tennessee and the Abroms Engel Institute for Visual Arts in Birmingham, Alabama. In 2005 he won an international competition to design the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, a project that took its inspiration from the aurora borealis. His last project, which he completed while being treated for cancer, is a bridge for pedestrians over the Trinity River in Fort Worth.
