NORMAN JAFFE FAIA (1932-1993)

Jaffe was born in Chicago to immigrant parents from Poland and Latvia. During the Depression, he was sent to live with relatives in Seattle where he attended high school. He joined the military in 1954, serving with the US Army Corps of Engineers in Japan during the Korean War. In 1956, he began studying architecture at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, later transferring to Berkeley for a bachelor's degree in 1958. Jaffe also studied at the Art Students League of New York and Art Institute of Chicago. Jaffe began working for Joseph Esherick and in 1961, he moved to New York to work for Skidmore Owings & Merrill and later briefly for Philip Johnson. Jaffe had begun visiting Long Island in the 1960s, and in 1973 he moved to Bridgehampton where he opened an architectural practice. He designed more than 50 houses. He died in 1993 while swimming off a beach in Bridgehampton, New York. Bio adapted from Wikipedia.

In 1987, Jaffe donated his services for a new synagogue, Gates of the Grove in the Hamptons of NY (above), which critic Paul Goldberger called Jaffe's greatest work. His work was displayed in museums including MOMA in New York. His archives are at Columbia. Website. Bio adapted from Wikipedia.
