"The Art School is, at the end of the day, one of the very best buildings of the early 20th century anywhere in the world..."
Following the devastating news that, as a result of the recent fire at The Glasgow School of Art, the south facade (and, potentially, parts of the east and west gables) needs dismantled, we the undersigned offer our support to the School and to Glasgow City Council to rebuild the Mackintosh Building as per Mackintosh's original design.
It is still too early to say what damage the structure has undergone, but we hope that, in time, plans can be put in place to save and restore as much as possible, and to rebuild the remainder. Irrespective of how much has been lost, the undersigned support the decision to reinstate this masterpiece like for like.
We have faith in the knowledge of the restoration team which has been hard at work since 2014; faith in the skills of the artisans and craftspeople who have been restoring the building; and faith in the people of Glasgow who wish to see the building emerge from the ashes.
