Visualizing Mackintosh’s Alternative Design Proposal for Scotland Street School

Abstract

This paper describes the process of creation of a set of visualizations (elevations, perspective views and a short animation) of C.R. Mackintosh’s original but unrealized first design proposal for Scotland Street School (dated January 1904). Moreover, the piece of writing reflects upon some key aspects of the project such as how architectural historians were involved and how ambiguities due to the discrepancies between the drawings and missing details were resolved by studying multiple drawings and transferring clues from other Mackintosh’s built works. The contributions of this research are important for several reasons: it proposes a methodology that can be applied to similar research projects; it explains the educational value of the development work, which can be defined as digitally handcrafted, behind the visualizations; it contributes to studies of buildings designed by C.R. Mackintosh by using digital technologies that open up new insights to aspects still overlooked of his architectural production.
