Michael Dougall to succeed Michael Jarvis as GIA president
Collective Architecture’s Michael Dougall, studio tutor in the department of architecture at the University of Strathclyde, has been named incoming president of the Glasgow Institute of Architects, succeeding current president Michael Jarvis.

At 30 Dougall will be the youngest ever president of the organisation after earned accolades for his social housing work and has recently completed the Cutty Sark Community Centre, Dumbarton.

In a statement Dougall said: “… we have an extremely exciting programme over the next two years. This year Glasgow will host the RIAS Conference and of course The Commonwealth Games, and preparation is already underway for The Year of Architecture, Design and Innovation in 2016.”

Dougall, who began his architectural career at ARPL, is currently working on an urban regeneration project in Stranraer, which will see construction of 200 new homes and associated public realm works in the town.
