Mac will be rebuilt, says Glasgow School of Art director


Excellent. A symphony is to be performed from the original score, and let no-one play a wrong note. What a fine counterpoint it will remain to the overbearing yet utterly forgettable naked emperor across the road, which should rightly be compared to an insistently repetitive Michael Nyman piece coming from and going to nowhere, like all the other inumerable rectangles filled with lesser rectangles we are now expected to admire as new urban architecture. The art in architecture is in the architect's mind as commited to paper. Therefore building it again cannot be regarded as pastiche (properly translated as 'cut & paste'); and to all those who use 'pastiche' as a pejorative term, let's never forget Palladio was among the finest pasticheurs of all time and that the 60's high-tech boys now have more pasticheurs following them than anyone else. A new Renaissance anyone?
