Architect Mark Fisher, who made a name for himself designing stages for bands including Pink Floyd, died yesterday at age 66.

He passed away in his sleep at the Marie Curie Hospice in Hampstead with wife, Cristina, at his side, after a long illness.

Fisher designed the original show of “The Wall” in 1980, as well as Roger Waters‘ performance of the show in Berlin, Germany, in 1990 and its most recent world tour in 2010-13. He also designed for Floyd’s A Momentary Lapse of Reason tour in 1987-89 and The Division Bell shows of ’94.

In 1984 he set up the Fisher Park Partnership with Jonathan Park, which he dissolved in 1994 when he established Stufish, the Mark Fisher Studio.

His resume includes work with The Rolling Stones, U2, Tina Turner, Madonna, Peter Gabriel, and Lady Gaga.

He also created designs for theatre productions including “We Will Rock You,” and “Ka” and “Viva Elvis” for Cirque du Soleil.
