The “Architecture in Detail” series comprises books that focus on individual buildings noted for their exceptional character, innovative design or technical virtuosity. Each volume contains a text by a respected author, a sequence of colour and black-and-white photographs and a set of technical drawings and working details. One of the great works of Arts and Crafts architecture, the Glasgow School of Art is a synthesis of opposites: austere and delicate, dark and light, derivative yet innovative. While the towering outer wall seems to echo the Scottish baronial tradition and the exterior impression is one of imposing grandeur, the interior is a lively and complex set of spaces.

McKean, professor of architecture at the University of Brighton, and photographer Colin Baxter provide an in-depth overview of the Scottish architect, painter, furniture designer, and graphic artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928). Scarcely dead before art critics began calling him a pioneer of modernism, the United Kingdom’s master of art nouveau, and the last great Victorian architect, Mackintosh’s reputation has withstood the test of time.
