The Enigma of Sir John James Burnet

February 22, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Come learn about an influential yet lesser known Glasgow architect!

Sir John James Burnet(1857 –  1938) was a Scottish Edwardian architect who was noted for a number of prominent buildings in GlasgowScotland and LondonEngland.

He was the son of the architect John Burnet, and later went into partnership with his father, joining an architectural firm which would become an influential force in British Modern architecture in the 20th century.

With a talent equal to Thomson and Mackintosh and an even more stellar career, Burnet remains something of an unknown.

Niall Murphy, Deputy Director of Glasgow City Heritage Trust discuses the career and buildings of Glasgow’s third architect with an international reputation.

Niall has over 15 years experience as an architect and, between 2011 -15, focused exclusively on conservation issues while working with built heritage experts, Peter Drummond Architects.

Niall is heavily involved in heritage and community issues in Glasgow being chair of Pollokshields Heritage, Planning Convener of Pollokshields Community Council and a member of the Glasgow Urban Design Panel.
