Quick Reference

(1781–1852). Scots architect. He established himself in Aberdeen where he became City Architect in 1824. He directed building works in the city for some 30 years, his only rival being Archibald Simpson. He designed some distinguished Greek Revival buildings, including the Schools in Little Belmont Street (1841), but he also carried out many designs in C16 and C17 vernacular styles that caused him to be referred to as ‘Tudor Johnny’. He designed the handsome Ionic screen in St Nicholas churchyard, Union Street (1830), and the Tudor Gothic Trinity Hall, Union Street (1845–6). His son, William Smith (1817–91), with Prince Albert, designed Balmoral Castle with Prince Albert in the Scottish Baronial style (1853–5).
