Basic Biographical Details
|Name: ||Alexander Green |
|Designation: ||Architect |
|Born: ||27 April 1913 |
|Died: ||1993 |
|Bio Notes: ||Alexander Green was born on 13 January 1913. He served his articles with an as yet unidentified office from 1928 to 1933. Jack Coia who was one of his proposers for nomination to Licentiateship indicated that he served his articles with Sam Bunton but as Bunton was born in 1908 it is unlikely that he would have been in a position to take on an apprentice when he was only 20 years old. Green's nomination paperlists three schools: Clydebank High School, Glasgow High School and Glasgow Technical College during this period but it is not clear if he attended the schools or was involved with work on them. From 1933 to 1938 he took the Certificate Course at Glasgow School of Art and the Glasgow Royal Technical College. |
After the completion of his articles he took as post as assistant in the office of Sam Bunton from 1933-35 but transferred to the Corporation of Glasgow Housing Department in the latter year where he was assistant Grade 1. By the time of his nomination to Licentiateship in 1948, proposed by Jack Coia, Frank Burnet (as President of the GIA) and William MacLean, Secretary of the GIA) he was senior assistant.
He was an Associate of the Glasgow Institute of Architects in 1939-40 and his address at that date was 360 Alderman Road, Knightswood, Glasgow.
He probably died in May 1993.
