School of arts

School of Fine Arts in Glasgow is a nice monument, which was built by the most famous architect of the city, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, whose trace is found in various buildings in the city, such as Buchanan Galleries, a shopping mall, or several shops of the Scottish city. Mackintosh was born in 1868, and was also a designer, with a minimalist style very particular. He lived most of his life in Glasgow, where he was commissioned projects for public and private buildings. There was much in demand as the industrial city was developing very fast, and not the most beautiful, but a learned art lovers ask a little more beautiful buildings that changed the city. Art school was his masterpiece and gave international recognition Today you can visit the school, and there are exhibitions with works of current students on the first floor, down can not visit because they are the classrooms. Admission is free but are asked not to take pictures. At the entrance is a map of the center of Glasgow where I explain how to locate the other buildings made by Mackintosh, and a shop with objects and books about his life.
