C.R.Mackintosh's Scotland Street School, Glasgow

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

This morning, I visited Scotland Street School which is now a museum telling the story of education in Scotland 1872-late 20th century with benefit of three reconstructed period classrooms.

As regards the architecture, this was Mackintosh's last major commission in Glasgow which serves to reveal the genius of the architect at a mature stage of his career. The design includes impressive leaded glass towers, magnificent tiled entrance hall, unique stonework and a demonstration of the interplay of light and space. Inside can be seen the designs for the building.
