3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Esther Schindler TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 18, 2006
Architecture is not meant to be viewed two-dimensionally; it is, after all, about defining and experiencing spaces. Yet, those of us interested in the buildings and artwork created by famous creators are often stuck with the photos on a printed page.

This 45-minute video traces the life and creative works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the designer of (among other things) the Glasgow School of Art building, who had a major influence on the Arts & Crafts movement and was a contemporary of Morris and of Greene & Greene. His work was a precursor to the Art Deco movement.

The video traces his life in Glasgow and his professional successes... and also talks about his marriage to his beloved Margaret MacDonald, who was his business partner as well. (Mackintosh claimed that he had talent, but she had genius.) The short video is well-made in every respect... not fawning but admiring, and the appropriate balance between personal details and architectural explanations.
