This afternoon, I am posting some images of a couple of contrasting buildings in Glasgow.

The following three images show the Aurora Building dating from 2006. This is located at 120 Bothwell Street. Cost was GBP55M and designed by Cooper Cromar.

I was very impressed by the slightly concave front of the building shimmering in the sunlight.




Here is something completely different! The following images show the Mitchell Library in North Street. This solid Victorian building dates from 1891-3 and was designed by William B Whitie.

The building is a major public resource in Glasgow containing Glasgow city archives and a large public reference library. Very useful for persons wishing to trace Glasgow ancestry.


Entrance to the building.

Glasgow is full of fascinating architecture including designs by Mackintosh and Greek Thomson.
