The Age of Mackintosh
Edinburgh University Press, 1992 - Architecture - 114 pages
This is an issue of our annual journal Architectural Heritage. Charles Rennie Mackintosh's popularity has tended to overshadow the equally successful work of his contemporaries. This book examines Scottish architecture at the turn of the century and focuses on some of Mackintosh's highly talented and in some cases, far more influential colleagues. Architects such as William Kerr, Robert Lorimer and James Miller are featured and there is special focus on the work of John James Burnet who,it is argued, deserves the esteem and admiration of the architectural world just as much as Mackintosh. Contributors to the volume include Liz Davidson, Mike Davis, Simon Green, Deborah Mays, Harriet Richardson, Audrey Sloane, Gavin Stamp and Adam Swan.
