Conservation Philosophy: A case study – The Mackintosh Building Restoration Project
The Glasgow School of Art
11 September, 2017
167 Renfrew Street
Glasgow G3 6RQ
A lecture and panel talk discussing the conservation philosophy guiding the work undertaken to conserve, restore and rebuild the Mackintosh Building, returning it to use as a working art school.
The Mackintosh Building inhabited since its construction by The Glasgow School of Art is widely recognised as a work of art in its own right. Through its many years of use the building has developed a unique patina and undergone a number of alterations and additions.
The recent fire and subsequent restoration raises a number of considerations concerning the integrity of the original design, the history of the building and its adaption for future use.
This lecture and panel talk is an opportunity to discuss this ever present dichotomy facing the conservation and restoration of buildings in use drawing on the unique and precious Mackintosh Building as a case study.
