The Mackintosh building is undergoing refurbishment just now due to the fire, but go to the new Reid building opposite for Mackintosh tours, shop and information

Local from Glasgow

The main building for the Glasgow School of Art was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and is considered one of the finest examples of his work anywhere in the world. Currently undergoing restoration after a devastating fire it is still worth a visit to see the architectural detailing on the exterior. If you are visiting in summer then check online for details of the School of Art degree show where students exhibit their works. You can pick up some amazing pieces and the atmosphere is brilliant.

First to Review

The Glasgow School of Art offers three tours, one of the building and two following different architecture threads throughout the downtown. I opted for the tour about the school building and was not disappointed. The guide was a recent graduate and her enthusiasm for the school was contagious. I knew basically nothing coming into it but after hearing the stories, seeing all the hidden details of how the school was built I almost wanted to apply myself! Some highlights were the seemingly floating pagoda-like security box in the foyer (there's no other way to explain it really), the decorative hallways and of course the gorgeous library. Very inspiring place.
