Who is Richard Gilbert Scott?

Richard Gilbert Scott is a British architect, the son of Giles Gilbert Scott and great-grandson of the great Gothic Revival architect George Gilbert Scott. He was educated at Harrow, Charterhouse School, Bartlett School of Architecture London University, and Regent Street Polytechnic School of Architecture.

Scott was the designer of three churches which have been given Grade II listings: St Mark's Church, Biggin Hill, the Church of Our Lady, Tile Cross, Birmingham and the Church of St Thomas More, Sheldon, also in Birmingham.

Scott worked for the family firm, retiring in 1999. Amongst other works he was responsible for the West Wing of the Guildhall and the Guildhall Art Gallery 1999. Both buildings contrast with the Gothic architecture of the Guildhall, the West Wing being in a modernist tradition, and the Art Gallery being in the post-modern tradition. His father was in charge of restoring the Guildhall after World War II.
