Sponsor Feature: HPA Architecture - In Memory of Byron Warren Pinckert


Filed under: Chapter

September 28, 1950 - March 3, 2021 Byron Warren Pinckert husband, father, architect and novelist passed away on March 3, 2021, in Long Beach, CA. Pinckert was the author of both editions of NAIOP’s influential publication, “Rules of Thumb for Distribution/Warehouse Facilities.” After graduating in 1968 from Pacific High School in San Bernardino, CA, Byron earned a bachelor's degree in architecture from the University of Southern California (1968-1972) followed by a master's degree in architecture (MArch) from Harvard University Graduate School of Design (1972-1975). In 1980, Pinckert and Dennis L. Hill formed their own architectural firm, the Irvine, CA-based HPA, focusing on commercial buildings. They sold the firm in 2008 to the current partners and Byron continued at HPA maintaining an active role in design and teaching. The firm has currently designed more industrial facilities than any other architecture firm in the country. Byron is survived by his wife Nancy Tormey Pinckert, his daughter Virginia Christine (Ginnichris) Pinckert, his son Dylan Warren Pinckert, his sister Toni Pinckert Bancroft (Robert), his half-brother Warren E. Pinckert Jr. (Connie), and half-sister Pam Borell. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made to the General Fund of Westerly School of Long Beach in Byron's honor.
