Steven Holl's Glasgow School of Art proposals revealed
The winning team behind phase 1 of the Glasgow School of Art redevelopment has revealed images of its plans.
New York practice Steven Holl Architects led on the design work after winning the job last September, working with Glasgow-based JM Architects and Arup Engineering.
Phase 1 of the plans will see the construction of a new building to replace the Foulis Building and Newbery Tower on Renfrew Street, opposite the existing Mackintosh building.
It will include digital media spaces, a lecture theatre, seminar rooms, exhibition space, a refectory and informal learning areas.
Steven Holl said: “The site opposite the Mackintosh Building calls for a unique, inspiring and stimulating 21st century architecture with a great sensitivity to light, detail, and material.
“The new Glasgow School of Art Building will provide contemplative space for individual creativity and thought, and spaces of collective interaction for students, staff and the Garnethill community.”
The student’s union, housed in the Assembly Building, will also be refurbished.
