Title Interior view of a large studio window and wrought iron window brackets at the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow
Alternative Title Large studio window and wrought iron window brackets on the north facade of the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow
Abstract/Summary The seven large studio windows on the north facade of the school give indirect light to the studio spaces. They are either four or five panes wide depending on the layout of the spaces they service. The wrought iron window brackets on these windows act to support window cleaners' platforms and add bracing to the mullions, but they are also artistically designed.

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.
