The Glasgow School of Art design was recently given an update at the Reid Building, courtesy of Steven Holl. This new campus addition is made up of a semi-transparent etched green glass skin that seems to have been perfectly fit on top of the historical school, making it seem right at home alongside even some of the century-old architecture that surrounds it.

On the inside of the school, the design lets in plenty of natural light, serving as the perfect backdrop for students to study, socialize, work and display their creations. Since the Glasgow School of Art was originally designed in 1909 by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, this addition is respectful to the school's history and even takes care to highlight new views of the Mackintosh building.
