Phil Gabriel

1939 - 2014


It is with great sadness that we announce that Phil Gabriel passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 9th, 2014.

Diagnosed with lymphoma in April of 2013, and with neuroendocrine cancer the following November, Phil was determined to live fully and enthusiastically until very shortly before his death.  He continued to design, educate and travel, taking joy from his two great loves, his family and his work.

Our thoughts are with his wife Jane, his sons, Andy and Mark and the rest of his family.

We will miss him greatly. We will keep his thoughts and ideals with us, working towards his passions; creating great spaces and educating the next generation of designers.

Donations can be made to the IALD Education Trust;  A memorial service will be planned in Ottawa in the near future, we will post more information as the details are worked out.
