Introducing Clever Confidential: The Darker Side of Design—The Strange Disappearance of Norman Jaffe
Do you love architecture, design AND true crime stories? Well, then you are IN LUCK! Today, Clever podcast embarks on a new journey (with your support!). Listen to the first episode of Clever Confidential, an offshoot podcast where Clever digs into the lesser-told stories of the darker side of design. Hear the stories of the shadowy – sometimes sordid – tales hiding under a glossy top coat of respectable legacy.
The first episode focuses on the strange disappearance of architect Norman Jaffe.
On the morning of August 19th, 1993, quintessential mid-century architect, Norman Jaffe, parked his car in his client’s driveway, walked to Ocean Beach in Bridgehampton, New York, stripped down, neatly folded his clothes, and dove into the Atlantic. He never returned. Despite a frantic search initiated within a few hours of his disappearance, his body was never recovered.
Was it murder? Was it suicide? Did he fake his own death? What happened to Norman Jaffe?
