The world-renowned Glasgow School of Art is housed in one of Glasgow’s most famous buildings, often considered the masterpiece of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Built between 1897 and 1909, the building is cited by architectural critics as among the finest buildings in the UK. The building is undergoing extensive repair after it was severely damaged by fire in May 2014.
The school is Scotland’s only public self-governing art school offering university-level programmes and research in architecture, fine art and design.
Since the designation of Glasgow as European City of Culture in 1990, Mackintosh’s enduring popularity has been fuelled by further exhibitions and books and memorabilia which have illustrated aspects of his life and work. The revival of public interest has led to the refurbishment and opening of more buildings to the public, such as the Willow Tea Rooms in Glasgow and 78 Derngate in Northampton.
