ALEXANDER 'GREEK' THOMSON

Thomson was a pioneer of sustainable building. He earned his nickname by using Greek Ionic styles in his designs. The Glasgow Institute of Architects set up a scholarship in his name to help students study architecture abroad. The second recipient of this award was Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
