The Glasgow School of Art is widely considered to be Mackintosh's Masterwork. For over 100 years the Mackintosh building has functioned as a working art school, housing the fine art students and staff, sitting at the heart of GSA's campus on Garnethill.
Mackintosh Fire Update
On the 23d of May 2014 a fire damaged the west wing of the Mackintosh Building including some studios, the Library and some archival stores.
On the 15/16 June 2018 during restoration work the Mackintosh Building was ravaged by a devastating fire leaving a burnt out shell. We are still shell-shocked after seeing the destruction caused by the second fire.
Mackintosh’s creation at the Glasgow School of Art is one of those rare works of architecture to transcend time: an inspiration for the present and the future. The loss is immeasurable.
Following the fire in the neighbouring Mackintosh Building, The Glasgow School of Art visitor centre and shop in the Reid building are closed to visitors. Mackintosh at the GSA Tours and Mackintosh’s Glasgow Walking Tours have ceased operation.
