Mackintosh Architecture: Context, Making & Meaning
The University of Glasgow’s Mackintosh Architecture project was completed in July 2014 with the launch of the website www.mackintosh-architecture.gla.ac.uk.
The research project, which ran from 2010 to 2014, was led by The Hunterian at the University of Glasgow and was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. It aimed to provide the first authoritative survey of the architectural work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The major output of the project is the freely accessible website www.mackintosh-architecture.gla.ac.uk.
This website provides a richly-illustrated Catalogue of all known architectural projects by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, entries for projects by the practice of John Honeyman & Keppie / Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh during the Mackintosh years 1889–1913; images and data from the office record books; a catalogue raisonné of drawings by Mackintosh and the practice; analytical and contextual essays; biographies of clients, colleagues, contractors and suppliers; interactive timeline and map; glossary; and bibliography.
Together these resources present the most comprehensive survey to date of Mackintosh’s architectural work, a fuller picture of the context within which he worked, and a broader view of his achievements as pragmatic professional as well as exceptional artist-designer than has previously been available.
