The family has lovingly composed the following obituary:

John Christopher Knowles, the founding chairperson of Architecture at Temple University, died March 18, 2018, of heart failure due to flu complications.

John was born in England on December 20, 1938. He came to Philadelphia from Nottingham to study at the University of Pennsylvania with the architect, Louis I. Kahn, who became both a friend and mentor.

John is survived by his wife, Brigitte and his son, Christopher, both of whom will sorely miss his gregarious spirit. His sister in England, Christine Ingram, will miss him greatly as well.

Funeral services were private.

Gifts in memory of John Christopher Knowles may be sent to Temple University, John Christopher Knowles Travel Fellowship, Institutional Advancement, P.O. Box 827651, Philadelphia, PA 19182, or made online through the link provided above.
