Facing Up to Mackintosh

Facing Up to Mackintosh

Louise Lockwood

United Kingdom | 2014 | 58 min
Built at the dawn of the 20th century, the Glasgow School of Art is the signature work of architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh, a structure regarded as a precursor of modernity. American architect Steven Holl (b.1947) was given the daunting task of creating a new building to sit opposite Mackintosh’s masterpiece. Filmed over three years, this film charts the design and construction of the new school of design, the Reid Building, inaugurated in 2014. According to Holl, it constitutes a complementary contrast” to Mackintosh’s building, forging a symbiotic relation in which each structure heightens the integral qualities of the other.”
