Charles Rennie Mackintosh: 13 Places to discover the Scot’s famous architecture in Glasgow

Born 155 years ago, the works of Glasgow-born architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh are still celebrated by fans worldwide.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh was born in Glasgow in 1868, and even as a young man his talent as a designer was quickly recognised as he attended the Glasgow School of Art and bagged an architectural apprenticeship.

Visit Scotland reports that “Mackintosh believed an architect was responsible for every detail of the design of their buildings, and his interiors reflect this.”

His works have an Art Nouveau style and include iconic style choices like high-backed chairs, rose motifs and a distinctly Mackintosh-style typeface. The font is so iconic that it has featured in other popular franchises like American Horror Story which used it for their logo.

To celebrate the legacy of the Scottish architect, here are 13 of his attractions from his hometown of Glasgow.
