Scotlands largest city dates back to the 11th Century. However much of the city centre was built during the Victorian era and little is left from the Medieval and Georgian phases of Glasgows evolution. The extraordinary variety of buildings in both the city centre and the West End draw their inspiration from throughout Europe and indeed much further afield. Visitors to Glasgow can experience not merely eight centuries of Architecture but a world tour of building styles.
The appropriately named Mackintosh School is set alongside Charles Rennie Mackintoshs masterpiece, The Glasgow School of Art. The Mac has a well established reputation for its lively teaching programme driven by a focus on what Architecture can contribute to enhance peoples everyday lives. This is underpinned by a studio programme which involves many enthusiastic practitioners and teaching which endeavours to be consistently inspired and inspiring.
