Robin Webster RSA
Robin Webster RSA studied Architecture at the University of Cambridge, and the Bartlett, University College, London. After working with Gillespie Kidd and Coia, Glasgow, he set up in practice, Spence and Webster, in London with Robin Spence. During their partnership (1972-1984), the practice won awards for its design of the Belsize Park Gardens residential project in Camden and, closer to home, they designed a new block for Ross Hall Hospital in Glasgow.
In 1984 Webster’s success was recognised when he was appointed Professor of Architecture at Scott Sutherland School of Architecture, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen. During his time there, the practice continued to thrive, winning a number of international competitions. In 2005 Webster set up Cameronwebster Architects with his daughter and his son-in-law.
He is a trustee of the Glasgow City Heritage Trust, continues as trustee of the Scottish Stained-Glass Symposium, and is a former chairman of the Alexander Greek Thomson Society. In 2018 he was elected as the President of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS). Webster was appointed OBE in 1999 and since 2016 has been the Treasurer of the Royal Scottish Academy.
