Tony Grunsfeld, noted North Shore modernist architect, dies

Blair Kamin, the Tribune's Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic, reported that Ernest A. Grunsfeld III, better known as Tony Grunsfeld, passed away last Friday.

Many of Grunsfeld's greatest homes sit on hidden bluffs along Lake Michigan, invisible to the passing public. I shot the above video, at one of Grunsfeld's more modest creations in Winnetka, nearly two years ago. The second part of the video is at YouTube.
