William Henry Playfair Architect
William Henry Playfair FRSE (1790 – 1857) was a prominent Scottish architect in the 19th century. He designed the Eastern, or Third, New Town and many of Edinburgh’s neoclassical landmarks.
Playfair was born in Russell Square, London to Jessie Graham and James Playfair. His father was also an architect, and his uncles were the mathematician John Playfair and William Playfair, an economist and pioneer of statistical graphics.
After his father’s death he was sent to Edinburgh to be educated by his uncle John Playfair. He went on to study at the University of Edinburgh, graduating in 1809. He was first articled to the architect William Stark and when Stark died in 1813, he went to London.
In the 1830s Playfair is listed as living at 17 Great Stuart Street on the prestigious Moray Estate in Edinburgh’s West End. This is not a building of his own design, but is by rival architect James Gillespie Graham.
