Rosslyn Chapel, a Category A listed building dating back to 1446, gained worldwide fame in the Da Vinci Code.  The images revealed are from a project developed by Historic Scotland and Digital Design Studio at the Glasgow School of Art, to survey and interpret heritage structures, creating the definitive 3D record of the architecture down to the millimetre.

Research is pivotal in the creative development of the GSA. It is the sphere in which staff and students share and exchange ideas, knowledge and interests.

There is incredible dynamism in the School at this level and you will be joining one of the most active, vibrant research communities in the visual creative disciplines.  In the UK-wide Research Assessment Exercise 2008, the GSA was ranked as the second largest art and design research community in the UK, with 25% of our research considered to be world leading and a further 25% internationally recognised.

As a prospective research partner, commercial partner or research student, you will engage with these world-leading academics and find the GSA an immensely stimulating place - a creative hothouse where new ideas are always encouraged and developed through learning, teaching and research which is studio based, face to face, professionally relevant and socially engaged.

Much of this activity is undertaken within our specialist research centres, which range in size and scale from the Digital Design Studio, our most established research centre based at Scotland's Digital Media Campus at Pacific Quay to the newly launched Institute of Design Innovation, promoting economic growth through design thinking.
