I was so sorry to hear, belatedly, of Chris's death. He was a friend and an especially close friend and fellow architectural historian of my late husband, Richard Pommer. He and Dick collaborated on an important study of the Weisenhofstiftung. He was highly intelligent as well as warm and generous. My best wishes to his wife and children. Linda Nochlin/Pommer

I just learned about Chris's death from the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians. In the mid-1980s I was a new transplant to NYC at the CUNY Graduate Center and Chris not only taught me Modern Architecture but shepherded me through an unrelated minor in Baroque Architecture--just the two of us. He was so incredibly generous, so warm, such a ray of hope in that environment.
I asked him once before a presentation he was giving if he was nervous, and he told me, "If you aren't nervous, you're probably not any good." Those words have provided me great comfort through many years. He was a wonderful man whom I always presumed I would see again. I will sincerely miss him both as a friend and exemplar.

I was in the summer CAU program a few years back where Chris introduced me to the wonders of architecture. He was an amazing teacher and person. My heartfelt condolences to Roberta and the family.

Dear Family of Christian Otto: My deepest sympathies to you in your time of loss. He was a wonderful delightful sunny person; I enjoyed having him as a professor in 1981-2. Pamela Thurber Duncan, MA 1985 HPP
