The board and staff of Architecture and Design Scotland would like to extend their condolences to the family and colleagues of Gareth Hoskins.
Gareth was one of Scotland’s foremost architects and a hugely respected contributor to A&DS. His loss will be keenly felt by all who knew and worked with him.
Chair of Architecture and Design Scotland, Karen Anderson, said “Gareth made a hugely important contribution to the architecture of Scotland – in his award-winning buildings, as an inspiring colleague and teacher, as an ambassador for Scotland’s architecture on the international stage and as a key contributor to our work and development over 10 years where he gave generously of his time, experience and expertise to help shape Scotland’s built environment. We are all shocked and stunned to have lost someone so talented and our thoughts are with his family and colleagues.”
Gareth was involved with Architecture and Design Scotland from its inception in 2005 as a Board Member and later as a design forum panel member. During his time as the Scottish Government’s National Healthcare Design champion between 2006 – 2010 he helped lay changes that had a fundamental impact on how the NHS approaches the commissioning of buildings which will have a lasting legacy for the people of Scotland.
