Part 2 Dissertation 2016

The internal weathering of the Glasgow School of Art by its inhabitants enhances its atmosphere. Internal weathering includes graffiti, layers of paint on sinks and dips formed in steps by people before us. You understand who you are and where you are through evidence of time and people past. Signs of inhabitation have meaning and are an important part of the Art School’s identity, especially given the forthcoming restoration.
