History

The Glasgow School of Architecture was founded in 1904 as a joint venture by the Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College and Glasgow School of Art. Classes were taught by staff from both institutions, the School of Art concentrating on the aesthetics and the Technical College on the practical aspects of building design. Professor Eugene Bourdon was recruited as Director of Architectural Studies and Professor of Architectural Design. The School was administered by a Joint Committee of representatives from both colleges. The Joint Committee was dissolved in 1965, when the School of Art and the new University of Strathclyde set up their own separate courses.
