Charles Rennie Mackintosh World Heritage Site Bid
Charles Rennie Mackintosh is regarded as the father of Glasgow Style, arguably Britain's most important contribution to the international Art Nouveau movement. As part of next year’s 150th anniversary celebrations the Society would like to have the buildings of Charles Rennie Mackintosh inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. This would give the same international recognition to Mackintosh and his work as to other architects such as Gaudi and Hoffmann.
Becoming a UNESCO World Heritage Site is a very long competitive process. Therefore, to present the strongest possible case, your support and input is valued. This is whether you are member of the local communities in Glasgow and Helensburgh, someone who knows and values these buildings or a visitor from abroad. We will strive to keep you informed of any new developments on a future World Heritage bid and any opportunities or events where you can be involved.
