It is with great sadness that we share that our good friend Luc Vrilojks passed away on Monday, August 1st while on vacation in Brazil. Luc was the founder and principal of Urban Progress Design, an urban planning and advisory company based out of New York and Amsterdam. With over 20 years of experience in the field, Luc worked in urban sustainability, development planning and city regeneration in Europe, the US and around the world. He recently worked with Living City Brooklyn Gowanus at our Community Innovation Workshop. Luc served as a facilitator and presenter on urban regeneration, with a focus on Community Planning and Green Infrastructure. More importantly, Luc has been an advisor and champion of the LCB project since its early days. Loosing his spirit, guidance, wisdom and friendship on LCBG leaves a hole in our work and a bigger hole in our hearts.
All of us at Living City Block will miss Luc and his thoughtful and passionate love of design, of planning and of all things urban and human.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Luc’s family and friends at this time.
