Glasgow School of Art: Rising from the Ashes
At 11am today BBC Radio 4 will broadcast a documentary covering the six months since the fire in the Mackintosh Building. The programme will then be available to listen to on the BBC iplayer.
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
A look at the recovery of Glasgow School of Art since the May 2014 fire, which destroyed students' work and damaged one of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's finest buildings. The GSA is looking to the future and has offered affected students a `phoenix bursary', while plans are being considered for a renovation that will preserve and retain the character of the Scottish architect's original design. The establishment is of international importance, and its future is hotly debated at a conference in Venice as part of the Architecture Biennale.
