Glasgow School of Art Facade Model
Glasgow School of Art's Mackintosh Building, "The Mac" or "Toshie" as it is commonly known, was voted Britain's favorite building of the last 175 years in a 2009 Royal Institute of British Architects poll. The facade is asymmetric with tower like masonry walls and small windows which evoke Scottish baronial architecture. Building was started in 1897 to a design created by the school's most famous alumnus, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, a leading proponent of the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau movements in the United Kingdom. The Mackintosh Building is his masterwork. This architectural sculpture is of the slightly off-center entrance facade. It was handcrafted by the duo Chisel & Mouse in their studio in Sussex, England and is made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frames and door are made of etched brass. See more work from Chisel & Mouse here.
