List of Projects

REID and GREEN

Established: 1895
Ended: 1905

Architect


The partnership between HA REID and FG GREEN in Johannesburg and Cape Town, between circa 1895 and circa 1905. Green appears to have been in charge of the Cape Town office during the construction of the Cape Town City Hall (1895-1905, foundation stone 1900), which commission had been won in an open competition with 168 competitors, both partners were involved in its construction but Reid thought his role in the execution of the building had been over-looked (see H REID). Reid was apparently away campaigning and Green had been on a visit to Australia while the job was in progress. Reid & Green also won the competition for the Cape Town Fever Hospital (Hospital for Infectious Diseases) in 1895, but the Cape Town City Hall was the last building to be completed by the partners.
