Burrell Collection

The Burrell Collection is an art collection located on the south side of the city of Glasgow.

It boasts and array of over 8,000 objects such as - medieval art (including stained glass and tapestries), wooden furniture, medieval weapons and armour, Islamic art, ancient Egyptian and chinese artefacts, modern sculpture and many, many other creations from the four corners of the globe - all of which were collected by one, single man.

Sir William Burrell, a wealthy Glaswegian shipping magnate and art collector, acquired these many items over many years, before kindly gifting them to the city of Glasgow Corporation in 1944. However, there was one condition - the collection had to be stored in a building exactly 16 miles from Glasgow town centre, so that they would not suffer any pollution damage, and could be enjoyed at their very best. The trustees then spent 20 years trying to find a suitable location, to no avail. Until 1967 that is, when Mrs Anne Macdonald gave the Pollock Estate (360 acres plus a house) to the city Corporation. The trustees were then able to alter the terms of the deed slightly, allowing the Pollok Estate to be chosen to house Sir Burrell's collection - all they needed was a suitable building.

Barry Gasson and Brit Andresen came up with the winning design for the Burrell Collection building in 1971. Their L-shaped building was specifically designed and tailored to house the wide and magnificent collection, complementing the artwork with archway-framed views over the lawns and woodlands beyond.

In 2005, a poll of architects voted the Burrell Collection as Scotlands 2nd greatest post-war building.
