Dunlop: ‘build a new library at the Mac not a replica’


I'm with John McAslan on this. I think it should be recreated as it was. It only has any meaning if it is here and it is possible to build designs based on it (or not) elsewhere. After all Mackintosh didn't build it himself so recreating it from his drawings (and other sources) is the same as it was first time around. I don't view this as a lost opportunity. The 100 years of patina are gone and are nothing to do with Mackintosh.
