What is happening to Glasgow School of Art?

On 23 May 2014, a fire tore through the library in the world-renowned Mackintosh Building at the Glasgow School of Art.

In June 2018, near the end of a £35m restoration project, an even more devastating fire broke out.

Ten years on, the remains of the building are hidden under a protective white membrane.

So what is happening with the iconic building?

Glasgow School of Art (GSA) said it was committed to a faithful reinstatement of the building, which was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

It plans to return it as a working part of the art school.

It said work to date, totalling about £18m, had been funded by interim payments from the insurers.

Work was stalled after a dispute with insurers, and GSA said it was in arbitration over its claim for the most recent of two fires.

The Scottish government has said it was giving "careful consideration" to the call for a public inquiry.

Earlier this month, the GSA said it was preparing to put out a tender for architects to proceed with the rebuild, and anticipated appointments would be made in July.

It said an updated strategic outline business case would be published in early 2025, and this work would inform the timeline for the rebuild.

The Mackintosh building in Garnethill was designed in phases between 1896 and 1909, in Art Nouveau style.

Firefighters worked "flat out" to save the building during the blaze of 2014, later announcing they had protected 70% of its contents and more than 90% of its structure was viable.

On 15 June 2018, as restoration neared completion, another blaze engulfed the building.

At the time, the fire and rescue service said the damage was "exceptionally significant".

Before the latest building works stalled, the GSA had said it hoped the building could reopen in 2030.
