Ian Begg

Very sad to hear of Ian Begg’s passing. Whilst Ian’s adherence to an historical architectural language was perhaps not to everyone’s taste, his zeal and commitment to building from first principles was unwavering. We were fortunate to walk the lower Royal Mile in the late 1980’s and it was remarkable to become aware of the extent to which he had been critical in reconstructing the fabric of the street from the earlest projects with Robert Hurd. His advocacy and vision for Scotland will be missed.
