Mackintosh Building Fire >

The Glasgow School of Art (GSA) is one of Europe's leading university-level institutions for the visual creative disciplines. Our ambition is to be global leaders in studio-based learning and research, collaborating locally, nationally and internationally, transforming thinking through developing creative approaches with new audiences.

In addition to a systematic investment in its estate over the last 10 years including the re-imagined Haldane Building, refurbished Library and the £50m Reid Building for the School of Design, since 2014, the School has been responsible for planning and delivering the refurbishment of the Mackintosh Building following the fire in May 2014. This project, planned and designed by Glasgow Architects Page Park, and delivered by Keir Construction Scotland was months from completion when on 15th June a second and more significant fire hit the building.

The Mackintosh Building

The GSA understands and accepts its responsibility for the Mackintosh Building. We are custodians of an iconic piece of world architectural heritage that has been at the heart of our campus for over 100 years.

In the immediate aftermath of the fire it is too early to be precise about the nature and extent of the work that will be required, nor of costs and available resources, but we understand that many individuals wish to demonstrate their support for the School and for this building by making a financial donation at this time.
