In 2021, we will open Designing the New: Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow Style which will offer our visitors an unprecedented opportunity to learn about Scotland’s most innovative modern architect and his contemporaries, among them many women artists, with vibrant displays of drawings, furniture, paintings, posters, stained glass, and textiles, plus immersive videos of Mackintosh’s buildings.
