Charles Rennie Mackintosh

Last Friday, a devastating fire--the second in four years--essentially destroyed the Glasgow School of Art building designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Sadly, the fire broke out when the building was nearly ready to reopen after extensive restoration.
Arguably Glasgow's best-known architect and designer, Mackintosh's work includes candlesticks, textiles, houses, and distinctive chairs for tea rooms in the city--some that are still in use today. His style is closest to Vienna Secession and art nouveau. The chair shown here is known as the Willow chair, from 1903. The original is made of ebonized ash.

Nice model, David.

The situation with the school is sad. I was talking with a friend of mine who lives in the UK and has visited there before the first fire. He said the damage is so great this time the remains may be razed. He saidthat the original building is one of the most well-documented in the UK and if the money and the will is there, they could reproduce the building down to the smallest detail. Big Ifs, though.

Thanks, Dave. As for the Mackintosh building, an article in The Guardian today quotes one official as saying that he believes the building can be saved. Let's hope.

Great model David. Sad thing about the possible loss of another historic building.
