HOPING FOR THE BEST, GLASGOW SCHOOL OF ART
I was so upset to hear the Glasgow School of Art suffered a bad fire yesterday. The masterpiece designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1909 is a fabulous example of Machintosh's unique take on the Art Nouveau and Aesthetic Movement styles. It seems much of the building was saved by a great many brave firefighters, however, the fate of the architect's library is still unknown, the room that is considered the most important of his work. I hope I can keep this building on my list of 'must see architecture'.
