Obituary: Andy MacMillan (1928-2014)


Andy was a great Architect and an inspiring teacher, a wonderful example of a magnetic personality. I had the pleasure of his personal tutorship on my thesis designs for a world university in Istanbul, whilst at the Mac 1987-1989 . It was a privilege to know him and receive his wisdom, mostly extremely critical!, and this early experience has become a great preparation for life in practice. Our field trips took in many of his own buildings in particular the memory of visiting Blackwell’s bookshop in Oxford and St Peters Cardross still lives with me today. I learnt my passion and commitment for Architecture through him and his leadership of some of the finest tutors in the land. He was extremely proud of his students and followed them on through their careers, often making trips to London and meeting in the French House Soho for a drink. Andy possessed a wicked and great humour; his charm was admired by all who came into contact with him. There is little doubt he will be sorely missed by the profession, institutions and all those who knew him. Chris Dyson Architect Principal Chris Dyson Architects
