Launch Event: Mackintosh/DSB Travelling Scholarship

Event info

The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society (CRMS), and DSB Award are delighted to announce their collaboration with The Glasgow School of Art to offer Architecture students studying at the Mackintosh School of Architecture the opportunity to apply for a £2000 scholarship to contribute towards travel costs to undertake academic research related to the architecture of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Full details of the award are available on the Society website here.

As part of the launch we are delighted to have Ranald Lawrence give the MSA’s Friday Lecture, as part of the series The Time is Now, in reference to the climate emergency.

This talk contextualises the design of The Glasgow School of Art within the changing environment of late 19th century Glasgow; at the time, one of the most polluted cities in the world. It examines how Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s gift for spatial invention was combined with the latest mechanical systems to create a new kind of ‘tempered’ environment unprecedented in its sophistication.

Ranald Lawrence (Liverpool School of Architecture), is author of ‘The Victorian Art School’ (Routledge, 2021), published with support from the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art.
