Experts pore over Glasgow School of Art library
The library and other parts of the building were destroyed when fire swept through it on 23 May, but firefighters managed to protect the majority of the 1897 building from total destruction by forming a “human wall” equipped with high pressure hoses to keep the flames at bay.
The cost of rebuilding the building, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, has been estimated at £20 million, with Brad Pitt and Peter Capaldi acting as trustees for the fundraising campaign.
