Glasgow Mackintosh

Mackintosh's 'masterwork' The Glasgow School of Art, built 1897-1909, bookends his architectural career. Heavily influenced by the Arts and Crafts style, Japanese detailing and Scottish baronial architecture, this work of 'total design' showcases Mackintosh's holistic approach.

The Glasgow School of Art

Discover Charles Rennie Mackintosh's famous furniture designs and the history of his Masterwork, The Glasgow School of Art on daily student-led guided tours. 

Widely considered to be his greatest architectural work, for over 100 years the Mackintosh building functioned as a working art school. In May 2014 a fire damaged the west wing of the Mackintosh building and as such there is no visitor access to the interiors whilst restoration gets underway.

There is still plenty for visitors to do and see at The Glasgow School of Art, including GSA’s brand new Mackintosh Furniture Gallery, Window on Mackintosh visitor centre and shop in the recently completed, state of the art Reid building.

GSA’s award-winning student guides conduct daily Mackintosh at the GSA Tours.
