Holl’s Mac building also damaged in fire

Steven Holl's Reid Building at Glasgow School of Art

Heat-damaged panels to be replaced

The fire that devastated the Mackintosh Building for a second time also damaged Steven Holl’s 2014 extension across the road, it has emerged.

Intense heat from the blaze in June damaged some of the panels on the translucent rainscreen cladding the Reid Building which houses the school of architecture, along with other uses.

These will be removed at the same time as the ongoing work to stabilise the Mac, Glasgow School of Art said.
