Sir George Washington Browne

Sir George Washington Browne FRIBA PPRSA (1853 – 1939) was a Scottish architect. He was born in Glasgow, and trained there and in London.

He spent most of his career in Edinburgh, although his work can be found throughout Scotland and beyond. He was involved in nearly 300 projects, including many public and commercial buildings.

One of his most notable buildings is Edinburgh’s Central Library, and he became recognised as an authority on library planning and design. He came to national attention after winning a competition to design a bridge over the River Thames in London, although this was never realised.

He was the first architect to be elected as President of the Royal Scottish Academy. He also served as President of the Edinburgh Architectural Association, and was instrumental in setting up the Royal Fine Art Commission for Scotland.
