Charles Rennie Mackintosh's first major public building - the former offices of The Herald (1895) - is being converted by architect Page & Park into the Lighthouse, Scotland's Centre for Architecture, Design and the City. The Lighthouse is Glasgow 1999's flagship project and a permanent addition to Scotland's cultural life, and is due to open in May 1999 with a wide-ranging programme of exhibitions which will explore the inheritance of the past, and reflect new directions in architecture and design. Interior graphics and displays have been designed by Javier Mariscal and Glasgow- based designer lwd. An extension to the east of the building will house entrance, reception and circulation areas, lifts and stairs, while the two main exhibition galleries, a variety of smaller display areas, a 100- seater conference room, education and it suites, and a cafe will be housed in the existing building. A rooftop platform will offer stunning views over the city.
