Basic Biographical Details

Name: D Harvey & A Scott
Designation: Architectural practice
Bio Notes: David Harvey was born on 6 July 1908. He was educated at Daniel Stewart's and was articled to Thomas Forbes Maclennan of Henry & Maclennan, Edinburgh, in 1925, studying at Edinburgh College of Art. He undertook a number of study trips, including a week at Durham Cathedral in 1930 and a month visiting modern buildings in Amsterdam in 1931. In the following year he gained his diploma, passing the RIBA Professional Practice exam later that year. He became a student member of the Edinburgh Architectural Association in the same year and was admitted ARIBA early the next, his proposers being Maclennan, John Begg and James Alexander Arnott. He then joined the office of T P Marwick & Son where he and Philip McManus designed a number of remarkable modern buildings under the supervision of Thomas Waller Marwick: these led to a major role in the Glasgow Empire Exhibition of 1938.

By 1939 Harvey seems to have moved to Cornwall but either during or just after the Second World War he joined the staff of the Scottish Office. In the 1950s he left to found the very successful partnership of D Harvey & A Scott (later David Harvey, Alex Scott & Associates), based at 2 Lynedoch Place, Glasgow.

In his later years Harvey lived in Lanark Road, Edinburgh. He died on 10 June 1975. After his death Harvey Scott & Partners became Harvey Scott Gynn & Duff, and later simply Gynn & Duff.
