Summary
Andrew MacMillan and Isi Metzstein both studied architecture at Glasgow School of Art, and both have been partners since 1968 in the firm Gillespie Kidd and Coia. Metzstein first served an apprenticeship in that firm, but MacMillan gained his early experience in Glasgow City Corporation and then at East Kilbride New Town. Though Metzstein was born in Berlin, both architects are Glaswegians and both teach at the Mackintosh School of Architecture where MacMillan has been Professor and Head since 1973. The Mackintosh School is part of the School of Art, and it was for the latter that Charles Rennie Mackintosh built what was to become probably his finest work. For their talk, they have chosen to concentrate on this one building, using it as a vehicle to study Mackintosh's architectural intentions and his exploration of themes, and to show how his understanding and his ability developed from the start of the building in 1895 to its finish in 1909. MacMillan sometimes says he is the reincarnation of Mackintosh, having been born in 1928, the year he died. Be this as it may, certainly no two people are more favourably equipped to speak about Mackintosh as architect than MacMillan and his partner, constantly involved as they arc, not only with Scottish architecture and Mackintosh's native city, but intimately with his famous School of Art
