Biographical history

James Robert Clunie Rowell was born on 7 January 1916. He studied architecture at Glasgow School of Art and the Royal Technical College from 1934. During this period he obtained three and a half years experience in the office of Keppie & Henderson. He was a member of the RIBA party which visited Italy in 1938. He would appear to have assisted in teaching at Glasgow School of Art in the session 1938-39. He was elected ARIBA in 1940, proposed by Thomas Harold Hughes, Andrew Graham Henderson and William James Smith. In about 1954 he spent a period of time teaching at the College of Technology in Ibadan, Nigeria. In 1960 he was in partnership with John Maxwell Anderson as Rowell & Anderson in Prestwick. He was a member of the Inverness Chapter of the RIAS as he would appear to have been based in Orkney at least by the 1960s. In 1975 Rowell was practising on his own with an office in Irvine in Ayrshire. He died in 2001.
