(b. near Ramsgate, England 1865; d. Brighton, England 1945)
Baillie-Scott was born near Ramsgate in 1865. He initially trained at the Royal Agricultural College at Cirencester with the intent of managing his father's estates in Australia, but after graduation he was sidetracked by an interest in architecture.
Baillie-Scott worked as an architect from 1889 to 1939. Although he produced nearly 300 buildings over the course of his career, his early domestic work was of the most architectural value.
A manifestation of the English "Free School", Baillie-Scott's work influenced the Deutsher Werkbund, the Chicago School and Frank Lloyd Wright. His mature work is characterized by the utilization of open planning and rural detailing.
In the later part of his career, Baillie-Scott's reputation declined because he maintained the design position he had generated in the early 1900s without adopting the principles of the Modern Movement.
Baillie-Scott died in Brighton in 1945.
