San Diego Architect Graham Downes beaten to death by employee

A number of my colleagues have been mourning the tragic death of visionary San Diego architect, Graham Downes. Noted for several iconic local projects including the Hard Rock Hotel, Bali Hai, Tom Hamm’s Lighthouse and Hotel La Jolla, the architect was fatally injured in a fight with an employee outside his home in Banker’s Hill.
