Glasgow has a long and rich history and the buildings housed within this architecturally impressive city tell its tale accordingly, from its sixth-century origins, to its current role as a vibrant and cosmopolitan centre of new industry and education.


Glasgow in 50 Buildings explores the history of this wonderful city by presenting a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the medieval Provand’s Lordship to the contemporary Riverside Museum, this unique study celebrates Glasgow’s architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Historian Michael Meighan guides the reader on a tour of the city’s historic buildings and modern structural marvels. The churches, theatres, commercial and public edifices of Glasgow’s rich industrial heritage are presented alongside the innovative buildings of a twenty-first-century city.


Images are arranged chronologically to tell the story of Glasgow’s development through its most significant buildings. A specially designed map appears at the beginning of the volume to show where each building is located and the text is illustrated with colour photographs and archival images, showcasing the best of Glasgow’s heritage in fifty buildings.
