A photo a day from Scotland’s biggest city.

Glasgow School of Art

Posted by Jackie on January 22, 2008

This side view is of the Glasgow School of Art, which was designed by one of Glasgow’s most famous sons, the architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The design of the windows is very typical Mackintosh, whose work you can see round the city.

Unfortunately you’re not allowed to take photos inside the school for copyright reasons, as it is still a working art school, which is a shame as it is very impressive inside. If you’re in the city it’s really worth booking yourself on a tour of the school – they are given by students and you can see all the typical Mackintosh designs. The library in particular is really something.

In case you’re wondering by the way, yes the hill really is that steep!

  1. I recognise this – I had forgotten just how steep those streets were – I was young and fit in those days!

    It is a beautiful building. I had liked seeing some picture of the interior. But, if one cannot, there is nothing to do. I like the post; it is very good.
