“Peter Marcuse had such a huge impact on me as I came into urban theory – shaped my views of housing as a human right and taught me so much of what I know about gentrification and urban development… What a legend! So saddened by this news,” Loren March tweeted.

“Peter Marcuse was great! His work leaves us with an important legacy… He always had something important to share with us at ACSP conferences. I will miss his intellectual presence in our planning community,” someone tweeted.

“I’m deeply saddened by the passing of the great Peter Marcuse (1926-2022). An extraordinary human being in so many ways,” a Twitter user wrote.

“RIP Peter Marcuse. A giant in the field of critical urban studies and urban planning, theorist of displacement, son of Herbert. His 2016 book, with David Madden, is an essential read for all housing activists and tenant organizers,” another user wrote.

I was discussing his work on displacement with students in a seminar this morning and the thought of adding ‘late’ in front of his name saddens me already. Feels like an end of an era, with many inspirational colleagues departing.”
