As you can see this photograph is of a model of a building. Unfortunately as most of you will know the original Mackintosh School of Art was severely damaged by fire in 2014. You can just about make out the original building behind this model Shrouded in scaffolding).DSC04569

One of Mackintosh’s most famous works, The Glasgow School of Art is under extensive renovation and is due to be reopened in 2019.

The Master clock (on the left) was linked up with all of the other clock’s in the school. mackintosh redesigned the clock face in his distinctive style.

Amongst the University’s collection of original Mackintosh furniture I was able to see this unique piece above which was very interesting.

Here you can just about see the sign above the door and some of the original railings.

Although disappointed initially I really enjoyed the tour that took place in the new building of the art school. I was able to see a wonderful collection of original Mackintosh furniture, the tour guide was brilliant, very informative. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.

I am definitely planning to visit again in 2019 and hope to be able to show much better pictures that do justice to this building.
