Abstract

Our perception of the architectural scene in Scotland around the turn of the twentieth century is distorted by an absence of monographs on many of its leading protagonists. One of the giants requiring evaluation is the subject of this chapter, which will touch the surface of this shortfall (Figure 4.l). His former assistant, John Wilson, reported in his obituary that ‘Sir Rowand Anderson, Sir George Washington Browne, Sir John Burnet, Mr Hippolyte J. Blanc and John Kinross, these were big men to all of us in the days of our architectural adolescence.’1 This brief introduction to Browne is an attempt to identify his major achievements, drawing on widely diverse primary and secondary material in the absence of an official archive.2 His place in the wider context will be suggested by the other chapters in this volume.
