Students given first glimpse inside GSA’s Reid building
January 7 2014
The Reid Building, named after former director Seona Reid, is being built at a cost of £30m directly opposite the famous Mackintosh building and is being built around three 'driven voids' to drive the maximum daylight and natural ventilation possible to basement lecture theatres .
At higher levels sit custom built studios and workshops positioned to enjoy a northerly aspect.whilst a ‘circuit of connections’ links each level via ramped circulation.
Speaking to Urban Realm JM’s design director Ian Alexander said of the scheme: “The new Glasgow School of Art building that we are working on with Steven Holl Architects from New York is particularly interesting. On a number of levels it is satisfying; poetically, volumetrically, materially and experientially."
