Isi Israel Metzstein

Isi Israel Metzstein OBE (7 July 1928 – 10 January 2012) was a German-born architect who worked at Gillespie, Kidd & Coia and taught at the Glasgow School of Art. He became known for his postwar architectural designs working in the European modernist style of Le Corbusier and the American Frank Lloyd Wright.

Isidore Israel Metzstein, called Isi Metzstein, was born in the Mitte district of Berlin in 1928, one of five children. His parents, Efraim and Rachel Metzstein, were Polish Jews who had moved to Germany in 1920.

Isi had an older sister, Lee, an older brother, Josef, a twin sister, Jenny, and a younger brother, Leo. In 1933, Isi’s father, Efraim, died leaving his mother to raise the five children on her own.
