IN Pictures — Glasgow’s New Charles Rennie Mackintosh Statue

A STATUE of renowned architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh has been unveiled in Glasgow on the 90th anniversary of his death.

It has been installed at the junction of Argyle Street and St Vincent Street and completes a £60million housing regeneration project in Anderston.

The artwork was commissioned by builder Sanctuary Group and was created by sculptor Andy Scott who made the Kelpies at the Falkirk Wheel.

The statue shows Mackintosh sitting on the high-backed chair he designed for Glasgow’s Argyle Street Tea Rooms.

It faces west at a section of Argyle Street reinstated as part of the 540-flat development.
