I write to commemorate John Eldridge, who has died aged 56 following a traffic accident. John's full time job was real estate partner at solicitor SJ Berwin, but he also found time to be a passionate enthusiast and patron of architecture.

John carried out a number of projects with Seth Stein, including the interior of SJ Berwin's new headquarters in the city, which is a remarkable departure from the staid atmosphere of most big City law firms. At the time of his death he was hatching further schemes with Seth, Future Systems and David Adjaye.

A patron of the Architecture Foundation (AF), John personally sponsored two of the AF's forthcoming exhibitions.

He was a member of the development committee of the Design Museum, and had just joined the board of Artangel. John was motivated by a love of architecture, insatiable curiosity and a spirit of adventure. He will be very sorely missed.

Rowan Moore, director, Architecture Foundation
