  The Glasgow School of Art is justifiably termed the masterwork of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The West Library Tower is startlingly modern despite being designed at the turn of the 20th century. In his design he captures Scotland’s ancient past as well as predicts forms of the future. It is celebrated as a landmark building of international importance, far ahead of its time and of huge influence on the development of modern architecture. The West Library Tower contains the lecture theatre below and two-floored library above. The tower overlooks Glasgow’s famous Sauchiehall Street.
