Bellahouston Park and House for an Art Lover
We had a lovely lunch in House for an Art Lover (designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh but built long after his death) on Sunday, then spent an hour or two wandering round Bellahouston Park using Glasgow City Council’s Heritage Trail. There’s also a good exhibition in the Stable Block about the history of the area and the use of the park in 1938 for the Empire Exhibition, including a virtual tour through a 3D digital image of the exhibition site – the only building that still remains to be viewed physically is the Palace of Arts. It must have been amazing to visit such a concentration of white modernism if you were used to the heavy sandstone of Victorian and Edwardian Glasgow.
All the information you need is in the links, so I’m just going to add a few photos.
