The birthplace of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and home to Alexander "Greek" Thomson for much of his life, Glasgow possesses an abundance of architectural riches. The influence of Mackintosh and Thomson can be witnessed in their numerous landmark buildings, and for many visitors it is the stunning creative peaks of the Victorian era that most allure. However, contemporary triumphs such as Norman Foster's Clyde Auditorium and Zaha Hadid's Museum of Transport also sparkle.
