Drawing on Holl
Mackintosh Museum

8 February – 23 March 2014

Curated by Mark Baines of the Mackintosh School of Architecture in collaboration with Steven Holl Architects, this exhibition will illuminate the design process through which the Reid Building, a striking addition to Glasgow’s cityscape, came into being. Staged in the Mackintosh Building, the exhibition will explore the architectural dialogue between these two significant buildings. At the heart of the exhibition will be prints of the watercolour paintings created by Steven Holl Architects as the design of the Reid Building evolved. Watercolour sketches are used to investigate and visualise the architectural form, appearance and the spatial qualities of the interiors, particularly the sources and the interplay of light which are a central feature of the Reid Building, as they are for the world famous Mackintosh Building opposite which it is sited.
