biography | the architect at a glance

Born in 1868, Charles Rennie Mackintosh was both an artist and architect. He is perhaps best known for his exquisite interiors, drawing upon nature to create abstracted forms for furniture, glass, and metalwork. His works, such as the Glasgow School of Art and the Willow Tea Rooms, reflect the desire to create a 'total design'. Inspired by Art Nouveau as well as Arts and Crafts ideals, these works remain some of the finest examples of these stylistic periods.
