Window on Mackintosh, Scotland Street School

Window on Mackintosh, Scotland Street School, Glasgow

 
Today, our small group cultural tour focused on charles Rennie Mackintosh sites within Glasgow, Scotland. At about 26 C  temperature was hot by Scottish standards and sun glare affected photographs.
 
First stop was the Queen’s Cross Church  which was commissioned by the Free Church of Scotland for a congregation of 820 and completed in 1899. The building is no longer used for worship and is now used as the H.O.of the Mackintosh Society. The design reveals a sophisticated handling of form, ornament and symbolic meaning.
 
The group was given a well informed talk on the building by a Director of the Mackintosh Society.
