Fulton Trotter Architects are sad to announce the passing of retired partner Ian Howard Fulton, aged 79 on Friday 27th May.

Ian Howard Fulton joined the firm as a student in 1958 before being made partner in 1966 under the practice name of Fulton Collin Boys Gilmour Trotter and Partners Architects.

As the son of founding practice partner, the late Charles William Thomas Fulton, Ian was introduced to architecture at a young age. They shared a high level of draughtsmanship with an enviable skill for producing sketch plan perspectives, rendered with a distinctive water colouring technique and style.

Ian was well known for his expert drawing and pre-digital artist impressions.

Like most of the partners of the firm at the time, Ian studied at the School of Architecture at the C.T.C (Central Technical College), George Street and the University of Queensland, where he graduated with a Diploma in Architecture in 1961. He joined Fulton and Collin as a student architect in 1958 and was invited to the Partnership in 1966.

Ian had substantial involvement in the design and development of Aged Care Buildings and their associated facilities and infrastructure. Ian’s warm and caring nature was often reflected in his concepts and design, creating a warm and homely atmosphere in every project.

Ian and Charles’ legacy to architecture lives on in the continuing name of the Architectural firm of Fulton Trotter Architects.
