Charles Rennie Mackintosh's design for The Glasgow School of Art is renowned worldwide. New York-based Steven Holl Architects was given the daunting task of creating a new building to sit opposite Mackintosh's masterpiece.

Filmed over three years, Facing up to Mackintosh charts the design and construction of the new design school, now named the Reid Building, and explores how a building can affect the people working in it.

The documentary is a collaboration with four recent graduates - Roberta Knox, Gibran Farrah, Walter Hamilton and Lu-Sisi- who contribute sound, illustration, graphics and digital design. Also included are interviews with Architects Steven Holl and Chris McVoy. 
Facing up to Mackintosh was completed just weeks before a tragic fire destroyed parts of the Mackintosh building including the iconic library, which was the inspiration for the Reid Building.
