Clean air, bright light: Mackintosh’s School of Art

This talk contextualises the design of the Glasgow School of Art within the changing environment of late 19th century Glasgow; at the time, one of the most polluted cities in the world. It examines how Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s gift for spatial invention was combined with the latest mechanical systems to create a new kind of ‘tempered’ environment unprecedented in its sophistication.

Mackintosh’s design provided a diversity of environmental conditions that allowed the school’s occupants to fine-tune their immediate environment to their activities, but also to enjoy the building’s unique relationship with climate and season. In this way, the architecture (and environmental systems) of the school can be read as a metaphor for the wider transformation of Glasgow – from a dark, smog-filled industrial powerhouse into a refined city of culture.

Ranald Lawrence (Liverpool School of Architecture), is author of ‘The Victorian Art School’ (Routledge, 2021), published with support from the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art.
