The Dictionary of Scottish Architects (DSA) is a database providing biographical information and job lists for all architects known to have worked in Scotland during the period 1840-1980, whether as principals, assistants or apprentices.
The resource is searchable by name or location of architect, practice, or building, as well as by client. Architects based in Scotland have their known works fully catalogued; but only the Scottish works of English and Irish architects have been included. The Dictionary is currently being extended to cover up to 1980 and the entries for many architects who practised after World War II are skeletons only. These will gradually be filled out over the next three years. The works of architects who trained in Scotland but practised in England, Wales, the Dominions and the USA have not been comprehensively catalogued because of time and cost constraints.
