Glasgow School of Art in flames

It’s a very sad day today in Glasgow as the iconic Glasgow School of Art, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh is burning in a huge fire believed to have started when a projector exploded in the basement and the resulting spark set alight some foam being used for an installation. Fire has ripped through the building, destroying work by students who were preparing for their end of year art show. It is believed that the library and archive have also been destroyed.
