Gareth HoskinsA special posthumous award was presented at a ceremony in Glasgow in memory of the architect Gareth Hoskins (pictured) who died in January.

Guests attending the Scottish Property Awards were asked to remember his life and contribution which included work on a number of high profile projects.

Mr Hoskins, managing director of Glasgow-based Hoskins Architects, suffered a heart attack following a fencing match. He was 48.

An award for Outstanding Contribution to Architecture was presented by Chris Stewart, chairman of the Scottish Property Federation, to Mr Hoskins’ widow, Dr Sarah Buchanan after the audience were shown images of his many career achievements in Scotland and abroad.

His firm played a key role in the £47 million revamp of the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, the V&A and the first-ever Scottish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale.

It was involved in the design of the proposed five-star hotel for the former Royal High School in Edinburgh.

Mr Hoskins received an OBE for services to architecture in 2010.
