Architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh's global reputation rests in large part on this magnificent building on Garnethill above Sauchiehall Street, a highlight of the Mackintosh trail that legions of his fans from across the world follow through the city. Currently under restoration, following a serious fire in 2014 the Mackintosh Building is scheduled to reopen in 2019. However there is still plenty to see on campus, at this world renowned university, whose graduates continue to make their mark in the international art world. Visitors are welcomed on campus, with a large visitor centre, and a changing exhibitions programme free to enter in the recently completed Steven Holl designed Reid building opposite the famous Mackintosh gem. Daily student-led tours run all year round, focussing on the history of the institution and Charles Rennie Mackintoshs legacy, offering exclusive access to the Schools unique collection of original Mackintosh furniture.
