COMMENTS
ON A SER-
IES OF DE-
SIGNS FOR
AN ENTRANCE
LODGE.

Full response has been
made to our recent invita-
tion to young architects
and draughtsmen to send
in designs for an Entrance
Lodge for adjudication.
The subject set has evi-
dently appealed to them
from the simplicity of the
problem they had to solve,
and, as a rule, the designs
submitted are of a good
standard of merit, both in
design and execution, while
it is pleasing to note that
there are, as compared
with former occasions,
fewer designs showing an
incompetence and ignor-
ance that must irritate the
assessor.

In the present case the

is willing to spend some of the best yj
years of her life, and to which she
readily dedicates her undoubted genius,
as it enters into the highest form of
expression modern art is capable of.

There are those who affirm that
modern art is dead, that it was but the
craze of an expiring century, with no
excuse but the flattering tribute of a few
perfervid followers to the genius of
William Morris. Such dogmatism
would not survive a visit to the Glasgow
School of Art, and to the hundred
studios in the city where Art and Craft
are practised as if they began and ended
in the individual exponents. This is
one of the healthiest signs of the times ;
it will prevent the recurrence of a period
of degradation such as distinguished
the Victorian age, and insure that Art
will be perennially interesting, because
in full sympathy with the time in which
it is practised. J. T.
