GSA Building Plans on VLE

Exclusive to GSA staff and students are the drawing plans for the School's campus which can be found on the VLE. A commonly sought, but little known resource, the plans show the floor layout of the existing campus buildings. To access, log into Blackboard, and select the 'Course Catalogue' tab. From here, select the 'Support Services' folder and click on the link to GSA Estates. The 'Building Drawings' button contains detailed plans for the Mackintosh, and all subsequent buildings constructed on the Garnethill campus. Drawings of the Foulis Building and Newbery Tower are there to be analysed which may make for interesting comparison against the new Steven Holl building. Plans for the new build are not yet on the VLE. We'll blog about it if they become available!
