Title Internal bow windows to the Board Room of the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow
Alternative Title Staircase adjacent to the Board Room or The Mackintosh Room at the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow
Abstract/Summary This image shows the junction between the western bow windows of the Board Room or The Mackintosh Room and the staircase that was added to satisfy fire escape requirements in the second phase of construction. Instead of removing the windows, Mackintosh chose to install translucent glass and run the stair around them.

Additional Notes The Glasgow School of Art was designed and built in the period coinciding with 'Federation (1890-1915)' in Australia, though it cannot truly be called a 'Federation' building as it is in Scotland. Also, sources conflict as to whether the stone used on the west, north and east facades is sandstone or granite, but its appearance is closer to sandstone so it is listed as such.
