Aberdonian Iain Dickson to take over as RIAS president

  • Comment

An Aberdonian is to be the next president of the rias. Iain Dickson, a partner in eight-strong Aberdeen-based George Watt and Stewart, will take over from George Wren at the rias convention in Glasgow at the end of May. He believes it is a strength not to be based in Scotland's central belt - half of the country's architects are in the Glasgow area alone. 'It will help to get away from centralised attitudes,' Dickson said.

On his presidency, he said: 'The most significant thing is the devolution question and how it will affect architecture in Scotland.' The rias has already been working on an architectural policy for Scotland. Dickson, 47, has been chairman of the rias practice board for several years, and is a member of rias council and the presidential policy committee.
