Discussing the disruptive chapters in Mackintosh’s life, and touching on events that have since come to play, such as the catastrophic fire on his greatest masterpiece, the Glasgow School of Art, Anne will look at the iconic building’s rise from the ashes and its rebirth using modern conservation technology.
