Exploring Glasgow

The Architectural Guide

‘A handy companion for all with an architectural interest in Glasgow’ – Scottish Field

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.

Robin Ward is an architecture critic, writer and graphic designer who was born and raised in Glasgow. He studied at Glasgow School of Art and subsequently worked for the BBC in London, and in Canada, where he was architecture critic for the Vancouver Sun. He has written a number of books, including Some City Glasgow, The Spirit of Glasgow, and co-wrote Exploring Vancouver.
