Basic Biographical Details

Name: Reiach & Cowan
Designation: Architectural practice
Bio Notes: With the help of a senior lecturing post at Edinburgh College of Art Alan Reiach managed to re-establish his practice in 1948, forming a single-project partnership with a colleague at the College, Ralph Cowan, to design the new College of Agriculture at the University of Edinburgh's King's Buildings site. By 1957 Reiach was so busy he had to resign from the College of Art and in the same year he took Renton into partnership, followed by George Macnab.
