Photographic Survey (5 November 2010 - 8 June 2011)

A series of survey visits were made to Glasgow School of Art in 2010 and 2011. These were primarily to record the Newbery Tower and Foulis Building prior to their demolition, but records were also made of the recently altered exhibition, archive and shop areas in the basement of the Mackintosh Building and the Student Union building.

The first phase of this survey work, in November 2010 and May 2011, recorded the buildings in use as studios, whilst the second phase, in June 2011, show the buildings in use during the school's degree show.
