about this item

Glasgow is one of the most architecturally exciting cities in the world, boasting a huge variety of building styles. There are grand Victorian public buildings celebrating civic progress and pride, commercial palazzi glorifying trade and industry, glittering art galleries, a Gothic Revival university as well as tower blocks, tenements, the Art Nouveau of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the quirky classicism of Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson. This book illustrates and describes almost 500 buildings and structures, featured not only for their architectural excellence but also for their social and historical significance.
