Entrance, the Glasgow School of Art
Nothing captures the individuality of the Glasgow Style quite like the architecture of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The jewel in the CRM crown was the iconic building he designed for the Glasgow School of Art. Unfortunately, a large portion of this building and its precious contents were destroyed when a fire took hold in the basement earlier this year. The intention is to rebuild and luckily many of the original plans survive to guide the restoration process.
The University of Glasgow has created an online catalogue of Mackintosh’s architectural projects; an accompanying exhibition of over 80 drawings is currently on display at the Hunterian Art Gallery before moving to the Royal Institute of British Architects in London in February 2015.
This picture was taken just a couple of weeks before the fire.
