Architecture | Mackintosh at the Hunterian Art Gallery
The great Scottish Art Nouveau architect and interior designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh is inextricably linked with Glasgow. He was responsible for many of the landmark buildings of the city and for schools, tea-rooms, and commercial buildings. The Hunterian Art Gallery is hosting an exhibition of designs, images, and models chronicling the work of Mackintosh as part of a major research project entitled Mackintosh Architecture: Making, Meaning, and Context funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. On show will be over 80 drawings by Mackintosh, including many never previously exhibited. There is a strong emphasis on the work Mackintosh carried out as part of the partnership Honeyman and Keppie – subsequently Honeyman, Keppie, and Mackintosh – from his work as a draughtsman and assistant, all the way through to his mature architecture.
