The Economy of Style: Thomas S. Tait and the interiors of St Andrew's House 1 Although best known Jot his designs of the 1938 Empire Exhibition, Thomas Tait is still one of Scotland's least recognised twentieth century architects. In the 1930s, Tait focused his attention on Scottish commissions and produced one of the most important Scottish public buildings built this century – St Andrew's House. The interiors of St Andrew's House provide insight into Tait's talent as a designer when set against the difficult parameters of a government commission. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architectural Heritage Edinburgh University Press
