The exhibition also includes original designs for The University of Glasgow which he made when he was twenty-nine.  A model showing a cross-section of the school and photographs of the external and internal details illustrate his early focus on designing every aspect of a building: the exterior, interior, furniture and lighting. When there you can also watch film footage of the school.

 The Architecture Gallery at RIBA is open from 10am – 5pm Monday to Sunday and until 8pm every Tuesday and the entrance is free.
