Steven Holl, one of the most talented American architects of our time, had to face this challenge in Scotland's largest city: Situated directly across the street from the main building of the Glasgow School of Art, the climax of the Scottish Art Nouveau, the prestigious Academy of Art asked him to construct a new building. It was inaugurated on April 9th - a good hundred years after the inauguration of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's magnum opus.
