The Mackintosh Society has done much in its 50 years of existence to champion, preserve and safeguard the work and heritage of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Sadly, since the last symposium in 2012 we have seen an apparently growing disregard for our built heritage, through neglect, bad planning and lack of action and investment by councils and government. It is therefore crucial not to repeat the destructive mistakes of the past and take bold action to reverse this decline.

Glasgow’s heritage is a unique selling point for the city and the importance cannot be overstated; it plays a powerful role in shaping distinctive, vibrant, prosperous places and contributes substantially to health, education and civic pride. It also sustains neighbourhoods as attractive places in which people live, work and play.

Although Glasgow’s architectural landscape may be unique in Scotland, its challenges are not. Across the UK, policy makers are attempting to strike a balance between preservation of historic buildings and the housing crisis that has engulfed major cities. It is a tension that is unavoidable, and we must ensure that it does not lead to unchecked erosion of our past.
