Trades' Hall, Glasgow

Built between 1791 and 1794 to the designs of Robert Adam (1728-92), the Trades' Hall was built to house the federation of Glasgow's fourteen trades, collectively known as the Trades' House, and is located on Glassford Street, in Glasgow City Centre. Many of the building's original Adam features remain, including the Venetian windows and unfluted Ionic columns. Inside there is rich wood panelling and a Belgian silk tapestry, dating from 1902, and which depicts the various trades associated with the city. It is the only remaining Adam-built property in the city and has undergone extensive interior renovation in the late-19th and 20th centuries.
