Glasgow School of Art Burns

quote [ Students and teachers have been describing the moment a devastating fire broke out at the A-listed Glasgow School of Art.

Eyewitnesses said the blaze started when a projector exploded in the basement of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh building just before 12:30.

Firefighters have been tackling the flames and at least five appliances have been called to the scene.

Many pupils are due to submit final projects in the coming days, but fear their work has been engulfed by the fire. ]

One of my favorite architects (and artists).

My first thought on seeing the title was "I don't know why there's a whole school dedicated to teaching people to insult art but it makes sense that it's in Glasgow".

Funny. My first reading was that it was a school in Glasgow that taught some kind of technique called a burn. I assumed it might be something with textiles.

It's called pyrography, and I am glad to see Glasgow finally recognizing this traditional craft, which has been elevated to a fine art, as evidenced by this bitchin' Camaro:
