Iain Wylie

It is with the deepest sadness we announce that Iain Wylie passed away suddenly on Friday afternoon. Iain was a very highly respected designer and a great friend to many within and beyond the design and construction professions in Scotland, across the UK and further afield.

His contribution to Austin-Smith:Lord over the past 24 years has been immense as a leader, a talented designer and mentor to many. He was instrumental in establishing Austin-Smith:Lord’s Glasgow studio, before going on to become a Partner and then Chair of the practice. He designed many signature, award-winning projects for the practice, becoming a Fellow of the RIAS in a great career spanning over 3 decades.

Iain’s kindness, companionship and sense of humour will be greatly missed by very many people though his legacy lives on through the things he loved; his work, the Practice and most importantly a wonderful family with whom we grieve and offer our heartfelt condolences.

Iain’s funeral will take place at Portland Parish Church in Troon on Thursday 9th June at 10.15am, then to the South Beach Hotel, nearby, afterwards. All are welcome to attend.

Feel free to contact graham.ross@austinsmithlord.com to indicate your attendance, as this will assist Iain’s family to gauge numbers. Many thanks.
