The Mackintosh Building was the heart of the campus

The Barnes Building on West Graham Street is the base for the Sculpture and Environmental Art,

  • American architect  has designed a contemporary addition to the Glasgow School of Art's campus, the Reid Building, which will house the school's design department
  • The Reid Building sits across the street from the GSA's classic Mackintosh building and wraps around the existing students' union building
  • The students' union building's interiors were redesigned
  • Three 'driven voids of light' cut through the structure, acting as large light shafts and helping with natural air circulation 
  • Their base also provides unexpected breakout spaces for relaxation and socialising
  • Big, north facing windows light the studio spaces while a café on the third level spills out to a green terrace overlooking the Mackintosh building
  • The layout is easy to read, designed across seven levels and housing workshop areas, offices, galleries and an auditorium; the circulation spaces were also important 
  • The new building will be inaugurated this April
