A visit to the Diamond building, Sheffield University
1 The very striking exterior of the Diamond building.
2 The group looking into one of the lecture theatres.
3 A view of one of the pods showing two levels. The lower level is for quiet study whilst the upper level is open to the atrium.
4 Another view of one of the pods.
5 A spiral staircase.
6 Another view of the spiral staircase.
7 A view of the ceiling showing the method of lighting and the service track.
8 Looking down onto the ground floor where students are working around the diffused lighting scource. The lighting scource provides light for the atrium and at the same time produces light for the basement. Two large pieces of glass cover the appertures to prevent articles falling through to the basement.
9 A view of one of the engineering laboratories.
10 A view of another engineering laboratory. Most of the photographs have been taken through glass which has resulted in some spurious reflections.
