THERE is no doubt that the Glasgow School of Art was a magnificent building and a tribute to Mackintosh’s skills as an architect.

It has stood as a monumental piece of art in its own right.

Is it not the time to let it go and set up a competition among younger architects to come up with a fitting replacement?

This could be used to showcase the talent of this century.

There are other examples of Mackintosh’s work which can be admired.
