    That is shocking news. I’m not on Twitter, so I don’t always hear such things in a timely fashion. Thanks for posting.
    He will be missed.

    His many students throughout the years will surely miss him.

    I only knew Unger through his books. Which are excellent, and will guide new generations of designers for decades to come.

    I had one or two times the opportunity to meet him. A true gentleman of type, and very humorous. May he rest in peace and be always remembered.
