Basic Biographical Details

Name: Douglas Hutton
Designation: Architect
Bio Notes: Douglas Hutton worked with Sir Basil Spence, Glover & Ferguson in the 1970s and subsequently joined Livingston Development Corporation. He later settled on North Uist.

He is presumably the same person as Douglas George Scobbie Hutton who was elected a student member of the RIBA in 1963. He was living in Edinburgh around this time. He does not appear in RIBA directories after about 1965 and perhaps joined the RIAS rather than the RIBA.
