    "Suddenly one encounters an endless staircase of rough concrete and, struck by contrasting sensations, one feels obliged to climb up it. Paradoxically, the house is so beautiful one gets a nagging feeling there’s something wrong with it."

  9. I am really hoping this works out well, I am huge admirer of C.R. Mackintosh’s original building for the Glasgow School of Art and I just hope Holl’s addition rises to the challenge of an addition to a true masterpiece.  A good addition should pay respect to the original without out being subservient, it should be integrated and yet separate  it should not imitate it’s host but reference it, not in material, style or form, but in spirit and aspiration. A good addition should stand as a mirror to the past, reinterpreting and updating the goals and times in which the original was built.In Architecture the highest form of respect one building can pay another is to be built as a true reflection of it’s time and place, and then only hope that as it ages it will garner the same reverence as it’s mate, aging together and letting the patina of time blur the line between the two.Based upon these photos, I think Holl has done well
