RIBA announces plans for an exhibition of Mackintosh’s work

Next year, architects and members of the public will have the chance to view some of the drawings and models that the great Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh produced during his life.

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) announced plans for the 18th February to 23rd May exhibition in late November, 2014. It will be held at The Architecture Gallery, which opened last February at the RIBA HQ in Portland Place, London. The Gallery is in a Grade II-listed, Art Deco building. It is open for exhibition attendees from 10am-5pm, Monday to Saturday, and until 8pm every Tuesday.

Members of the press will have the opportunity to view the exhibition in advance of it opening to the public. The press day will be held on 17th February, between 9am and 11am.

Students from The Hunterian, University of Glasgow, developed the Mackintosh Architecture exhibition alongside the RIBA team. For four years, the institute has been researching Mackintosh’s work using funding from the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC). Many of the pieces in the exhibition were discovered during the research process.

The exhibition is part of a season of events and workshops being held by RIBA. These events are being designed for people of all ages and knowledge of architecture, with architects from Chester and across the UK expected to travel to see the exhibition. It is a rare chance for modern architects to see a large collection of the renowned designer’s work.
