GALLERY,LIBRARY & POP UP TEA ROOM
One of Scotland's leading model makers, Cemal Ozturk, has constructed the first true representations after blueprints were discovered in the archives of Glasgow University.
Models of seven buildings, many of which would have transformed the skyline of Mackintosh's home town of Glasgow, are to feature in our new exhibition opening in Feb/March entitled 'Unbuilt Mackintosh'
All the designs have been built from incomplete or vague plans and were consigned to the files of Honeyman & Keppie, the architects firm where Mackintosh worked, after they were rejected.
The buildings show the idiosyncratic design style of Mackintosh - the railway terminus has two tall towers like minarets on a fairytale castle, while his two separate designs for concert halls are adorned with distinctive square windows and decorations inspired by the arts and crafts movement and the natural world.

Glasgow Culture Vulture Group visited on Sunday 27th May.
"The MacKintosh Club is such a great place, that I arranged to take a group of 20 friends from the 'Glasgow Culture Vultures' group. We were all thoroughly impressed by the club. Nicola and Bruce's passion for the club had shown through. Perhaps it makes a difference to have the owners of the club rather than someone else doing a 9-5 job. There was very much an extra level of customer care and friendliness. We were all welcomed, and everything was run and organised in a very professional manner.
It was great that they opened the club, on a Sunday, just for us. Excellent quality of coffee, served in a cafetiere, and yummy cakes was served. Everyone in the group very much appreciated Bruce's talk on the building, that wasn't expected, and was an added bonus.
It's a venue with unlimited potential and could suit any needs. The baby grand piano and the size and shape of the room must deliver very fine acoustics. With plenty of natural light coming into the room, it allowed us to see, and appreciate the two current art exhibitions. It is a very charaterful and atmospheric building and one where someone could easily become inspired in"Michael Wilson, Chairman, Glasgow Culture Vulture's
