Queens Cross Church – Charles Rennie Mackintosh – 1897-9
Looking at this church from across the road it is very plain to see that this is a mackintosh building. however when I arrived at the building by a taxi that approached from the side and I was quite underwhelmed. For a few seconds I genuinely thought the driver had brought me to the wrong place, which is what made the following few seconds all the more magical as I began to notice every little beautiful detail that makes a Mackintosh a Mackintosh.
You could almost be forgiven for mistaking this church’s interior as any other traditional church interior. This is the genius of this building. All the subtle Mackintoshisms make the building really special whilst still achieving the simplistic interior that was required.
The above pictures are perfect examples of what sets this church apart from any other.
