Thomson calls from the grave for young architects

  • Comment

A young architect is to have the opportunity to design a monument for Alexander 'Greek' Thomson, Glasgow's rediscovered architectural hero. The Glasgow Institute of Architects, which administers the Alexander Thomson Travelling Studentship, is running a competition with the Alexander Thomson Society to design a monument to cover Thomson's grave. Thomson is buried with his wife and five of his children in the Southern Necropolis, near his Caledonia Road Church. It is believed that any existing gravestone or monument was cleared in the 1950s following vandalism, so the new design will have to be vandal-proof.

The competition is open to students or architects under 30. Contact Gordon Smith, Convenor of the gia, 2, Merkland Street, Glasgow G11 6DB.
