Tuesday 2 July
Opening Drinks Reception
You are warmly invited to join us for the Opening Drinks Reception, hosted by Glasgow City Council at the magnificent City Chambers in the centre of Glasgow.
Following the drinks reception, take a tour of some of Glasgow's historic landmarks. Please note that places are strictly limited, especially for the Art School, and must be booked in advance.
Glasgow School of Art - The Mackintosh Building
The Mackintosh Building tour at The Glasgow School of Art introduces groups to Mackintosh’s ‘total design’ style in some of his most celebrated interiors, including the famous Mackintosh Library. Conducted by an award-winning team of guides, all of whom are all current GSA students or recent graduates, the tour offers the opportunity to admire Mackintosh’s original aesthetic in stained glass and enamel, wrought iron work and carved wood. The Glasgow School of Art, is widely considered Mackintosh’s architectural ‘masterwork’, and in this seminal building groups will identify a theatrical Japanese-inspired aesthetic married to Scotland’s own baronial tradition and influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement, the Celtic Revival and the International Art Nouveau.
Note: only 40 places available.
City walking tours
Glasgow has a wealth of architectural interest from Rennie Mackintosh's School of Art building to Alexander 'Greek' Thomson's buildings. More recently buildings by Zaha Hadid, David Chipperfield, Foster + Partners and local architects have brought interest to the city. Experienced local guides will take you for an hour's walking tour of central Glasgow, starting from the City Chambers.
