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.
