A day in the life of a young trainee architect, Hamish McLachlan

Abstract

In 1996, Hamish McLachlan, a former architecture student of Edinburgh College of Art, contacted the Principal to see whether the College would be interested in acquiring his student drawings (Figure 5.1). Professor Alistair Rowan in turn directed him to the National Monuments Record of Scotland, which he knew had significant holdings of student drawings, and so began a dialogue that has resulted not only in the deposit of ‘Mac's’ drawings but also in the documenting of many vivid memories of his architectural education and his training in Basil Spence's Edinburgh office. Ian Gow did much to encourage him in these reminiscences which are of particular interest to the NMRS because Mac was one of a band of students who helped with the Scottish National Buildings Record Emergency Survey of Stirling in 1940. 1
