I think Alan Dunlop sees this as an opportunity to build a new building - which it may well turn out to be - his books "Challenging Contextualism and Curious Rationalism" certainly speak to his intentions. Although they appear to be listening to the consultants they have hired, one would think that the School of Art would fire them all after the ruins have been stabilized.

But that doesn't save the building - I'm afraid that the shell is going to sit there for a long time, similar to LHS's Pilgrim Baptist Church, and the School of Art will take up residence in another building.

Have they determined the cause of the latest fire?

"The issue is going to be money."

Indeed. But given the stature of the building, and the likelihood that it's the only thing that draws people to visit Glasgow, the cost should be seen as an investment with a long-term payoff. It's working for Buffalo.
