Glasgow School of Art Library Tower

380.00

This Timothy Richards scale façade model would make a beautiful statement gift for any student or alumni of the great School of Art to be placed in any studio, office or study.

This part of the Glasgow School of art was built in the second phase of construction from 1907-1909. The Glasgow School of Art is the masterwork of the architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The West Library Tower is part of the main school. The building is a celebrated landmark building of international importance being far ahead of its time and of great influence on the development of modern architecture.

The tower contains the lecture theatre below and the double-floored library above which is now undergoing extensive restoration due to the fire earlier this year. It overlooks Glasgow’s famous Sauchiehall Street. The building shows many characteristics of the Art Nouveau style that spread throughout Europe and influenced many American architects.

The design draws on the past Scottish baronial architecture whilst looking to the future. At this time the shipyards of Glasgow were producing over a third of world tonnage. From the skill base of the shipyards, Mackintosh drew on the culture of craftsmen across the city.
