Title Labelled plans of the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow
Alternative Title Ground, first and second floor plans of the Glasgow School of Art with mezzanine levels drawn
Abstract/Summary The plan drawings show the school's E-shaped form with north being down the page. The larger studio type rooms are arranged along the north facade for its qualities of indirect light, with the famous library situated on the south western corner. The main entry on the north of the building is clearly centralised, despite the asymmetrical nature of the northern facade.

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.
