List of Projects




A partnership established in 1904 when Arthur James STEWART emigrated to Johannesburg to join Robert HOWDEN, eight years his senior, in partnership as HOWDEN & STEWART. His previous connection with Stewart is unclear. The partnership had an early major success, winning the 1906 competition for the giant Transvaal University College which was assessed by Thomas Edward Collcutt.
