US architect James S Rossant died on 15 December in Normandy, France, at the age of 81.

Rossant, a student of the Bauhaus architect Walter Gropius, designed the planned city of Reston and developed the 1966 master plan for New York’s lower Manhatten that included the build of Battery Park City.

He first made his mark as a designer of the Butterfield House in Greenwich Village that was hailed as a model of how to integrate modern architecture into a historic townhouse district, according to the New York Times.
