The neoclassical building in Glasgow’s Royal Exchange Square was built in 1778 as the townhouse of a wealthy Glasgow Tobacco Lord. It has changed its role a few times since then, and it now houses the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA).
The pediment balanced on its Corinthian pillars is the work of Niki de Sainte Phalle. The mirrored mosaic of fluffy clouds looked wonderful in the light of a very similar real sky above, drawing my attention to the interesting characters who tell the legend of St Mungo.
