The Glasgow School of Art [electronic resource]: Architectures-Achievements in Modern Architecture

ARTE France
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Built at the dawn of the 20th century, the Glasgow School of Art is the masterpiece of the only British artist considered as a precursor of modernity, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The most eminent practitioner of the "Glasgow Style", the equivalent of French Art Nouveau, Mackintosh devoted more than 10 years to fulfilling what is without doubt his most innovative architectural project, a masterwork that combines constructive rationality, Art nouveau subjectivism, obsessive attention to detail and decorative fantasy. 10 years of work during which the architect never once set foot on the building site. After many years in purgatory, the school has become a place of pilgrimage for generations of architects. Its influence is without parallel in early 20th century architecture.
