Mackintosh school honours Gillespie Kidd & Coia architects

The University of Glasgow has given honorary degrees to Andy MacMillan and Isi Metzstein on behalf of Glasgow School of Art (the Mackintosh).

The awards recognise them 'for their impact on Scottish architectural culture, their considerable academic involvement at The Glasgow School of Art and the revival of interest in their work following the exhibition Gillespie Kidd and Coia: Architecture 1956 – 1987 at The Lighthouse, Scotland’s centre for Architecture and Design.'

Seona Reid, director of The Glasgow School of Art, said: 'I cannot think of any architects living in Scotland today who have had more influence on both architectural design and architectural education than Andy and Isi. They brought to post war Britain a fresh, new architectural language, establishing Gillespie Kidd and Coia as one of the 20th century’s leading architectural practices, as witnessed at the recent exhibition at the Lighthouse.'
