Mackintosh Building windows undergo conservation

GSA Library windows 170613The massive library windows of the Mackintosh Building here at Glasgow School of Art are currently undergoing conservation. The 30ft high windows will be removed and taken to specialist conservators, who will replace cracked panes and restore metal frames.

Last week preparation for the works began by protecting the woodwork, floors and lights in the library and bringing in protective screens which will replace the windows while they are being restored.

The work has been funded by Historic Scotland, the Heritage Lottery Fund and The Getty Foundation.
