Paul Scott worked with Make boss at Foster’s before joining Shuttleworth’s practice

Make boss Ken Shuttleworth has paid tribute to a partner at the firm, Paul Scott, who passed away last month.

The 50-year old, whose CV include stints at Foster & Partners, Glenn Howells Architects and a spell working alongside Robin Partington, died following a short battle against cancer.

He joined Make in 2005, leaving to work with Partington for a while before eventually returning to Shuttleworth’s firm.

Shuttleworth said: “Paul was passionate about architecture and had an exceptional career that spanned some 30 years. His professional achievements were not limited to the buildings he designed but the deep passion for architecture he instilled in others.”

Among the schemes he worked on was Foster’s Swiss Re building – where he was in charge of the architectural team and worked alongside Shuttleworth – and the firm’s Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow. And he also worked on Foster’s Commerzbank headquarters in Frankfurt, which was completed in the late 1990s.

At Make, he worked on the Cube in Birmingham as well as 40 Leadenhall Street in the City of London along with schemes in Australia and India.

Shuttleworth added: “He will be sorely missed by us all at Make and beyond. He was quite simply one of kind – kind to a fault and entirely unique.”

He is survived by wife Jane and teenage daughters Isabella and Annie.
