House for Art Lover Glasgow Scotland

Thursday, May 14, 2009

Thia afternoon I am posting a video clip taken within last 24 hours of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's House for Art Lover in Glasgow.

Unfortunately, interior was closed at time of visit but extremely favourable weather conditions suited filming of the impressive exterior.

This building was completed in 1996 from Mackintosh's drawings dating from 1901 which were submitted via a competition entry to a German design magazine.

Mackintosh designed everything, from buildings down to all aspects of the interior. The house incorporates a permanent exhibition of decorative furnished rooms by contemporary artists and craftspeople.

Mackintosh's wife, Margaret McDonald, was also involved in the design.

Entry fee is modest and the House is deserving of a visit when in Glasgow.
