Mackintosh and Kingsley

Hello,

This particular day I felt like sharing some photographs of some of the very fine buildings designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Just because I can, I’ve also included a picture of the new CRM statue in Anderston and also another Glaswegian design classic created by David Shrigley. Enjoy.

The Hill House, Helensburgh, which is currently under a box for conservation reasons. I like the railings.

Kingsley, the Partick Thistle mascot, designed by David Shrigley. This toy sits by my bed as I write this. x

    Nice photos, Kev. The weather changed quite dramatically between the two photos of the Hill House, didn’t it? Looks lovely anyway. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  3. CRM and Kingsley definitely win the prize for “strangest juxtaposition”…

    Hill House is on my “to visit” list. There’s also a house in Northampton called 78 Derngate, which was designed by Mackintosh (the only such building south of the border).
