NGS were devastated at the news of an extensive fire at the Glasgow School of Art. Our thoughts go out to all those directly involved, particularly the students and staff, and we offer our support to GSA at this time. Thankfully no one was injured and the building was evacuated safely.

As is well documented, the Mackintosh Building is one of the finest examples of architecture in the city; one where form and function merge seamlessly, and the true value of outstanding architecture can be keenly felt. The creativity that permeates the building and the architecture, is reflected in the graduates, students and work that emerge from the school. 

Our profound thanks also go to the West of Scotland Fire Service who controlled the blaze and stopped an already terrible situation turning in to an even more tragic one.
