REID BUILDING, THE GLASGOW SCHOOL OF ART
Glasgow, United Kingdom

The Reid Building is in complementary contrast to Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s 1909 Glasgow School of Art - forging a symbiotic relation in which each structure heightens the integral qualities of the other. A thin translucent materiality in considered contrast to the masonry of the Mackintosh building - volumes of light which express the school’s activity in the urban fabric embodying a forward-looking life for the arts.
