The AJ’s 12 days of Christmas: James Gowan

James Gowan

Over the next two days the AJ takes a look at the architects who have made the headlines this year. Next up: James Gowan

In 2015, we said goodbye to the post-war architect James Gowan. Gowan, who was best-known for his collaborations with James Stirling, died in June, aged 92.

Gowan co-founded Stirling and Gowan with Stirling in 1956, after they met while working as assistants at Lyons, Israel and Ellis.

Many of Stirling’s most famous works, including the Leicester Engineering Building, were completed alongside Gowan, yet Stirling was largely unwilling to acknowledge his role in the process.
