Mackintosh150 Light Pavilion

As part of Mackintosh150, a year long celebration of 150 years since the birth of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Scott Jarvie was asked to design a public landmark to celebrate the life and works of Mackintosh. Mackintosh was a master of light, pattern and form – it is these elements the ‘Light Pavilion’ looks to celebrate.

The Pavilion is housed under the magnificent glass roof in Glasgow’s Central Station. The unique natural light within the station space offers the perfect backdrop for a design that celebrates the Life and Works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

The Pavilion consists of two opposing seating areas which support an elliptical grid, featuring jewelesque stained glass detailing. The structure combines traditional fine woodworking craftsmanship and cutting edge modern manufacture in its creation. By referencing Mackintosh’s magnificent stained glass panels and ingenious use of geometric pattern the Light Pavilion seeks to create a structure that brings the space alive with light and movement and offers a sanctuary in a busy public space.
