Title The north west corner of the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow
Alternative Title Large studio windows and multi-storey oriel windows of the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow
Abstract/Summary This image shows the large double height windows on the north facade that give indirect light to the studios. 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. The multi-storey oriel windows of the library space can be seen on the west facade at the right of the image.

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.
