Charles Rennie MacKintosh

Today is one of the saddest days in the United Kingdom when it comes to architectural masterpieces. The Glasgow School of Art, designed by Charles Rennie MacKintosh was lost to a devastating fire.

I'm sure no one from the Daily Mail or Getty Images will mind, given the circumstances. Thanks to both.


Thanks go [email protected]_west for their efforts

I read an article that said the building was salvageable. The exquisitely designed library was ruined though. They'll rebuild it though.
