Glasgow School of Art fire

Looks like there's been a major fire at the Glasgow School of Art. I have heard about this school through the "Scottish Ten", who do a lot of heritage recording through the use of tools like laser scanners.

Not news in Australia, because we apparently don't care about art.

It's been news on Radio National, at least. Last I heard, the curators and firies had worked together to ensure some of the most important content was saved. Any news about the MacKintosh library?

Neil Baxter, secretary of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland who has taught at the school, said the library was the “zenith” of Mackintosh’s architecture but was now “gone completely”. “He is one of the most important 20th century European architects, so losing his very finest achievement is a tragedy of world scale,” he said. “It is like losing Monet’s Water Lillies.”
damn

There will now be demands to reconstruct the late 19th century building – known affectionately by students as “the Mac” – which attracts around 20,000 visitors every year. It was designed by Mackintosh, who remains one of the country’s most significant architects and painters. It was named the best British building of the last 175 years in a nationwide poll in 2009.
fuck, even

This interview with Muriel Gray will lift your spirits. She's literally bubbling the news is so much better than feared.

http://www.channel4.com/news/glasgow...ng-blaze-smoke

Quote:
The majority of Glasgow School of Art has survived a huge fire, the art school's chair Muriel Gray tells Channel 4 News, saying the iconic building is "bruised" but not destroyed.

"But the most amazing, almost miraculous news is that the majority of the building is still intact. Due to one of the most astonishingly intelligent and professional pieces of strategy by the fire services, they succeeded in protecting the vast majority of the building, apparently by forming a human wall of firefighters up the west end of the main staircase and containing the fire."

She added: "Mackintosh didn't work with precious materials, he worked with precious ideas... and we can rebuild that."
Earlier, the fire service said that around 90 per cent of the building has been salvaged and up to 70 per cent of its contents saved.

Thread is a roller coaster of reactions for me - oh no!... oh bit better... nooooo!... well done firefighters!..

Mackintosh is by far my favourite architect and furniture/interiors designer. My sis and I were just talking day before yesterday about how much we would like to see some of his work irl.

Is that some sort of Australian rhyming slang? Like 'apples and pears - clean', or something.

It's Australian slang, but I don't know the etymology. Definitely not rhyming slang though.
