Inspiration

At 255 feet (78 m) tall, The Arts Tower is now the second tallest building in Sheffield , behind the 101 m, St Paul’s Tower on Arundel Gate, It is however the tallest university building in the UK
Designed by architects Gollins, Melvin, Ward & Partners construction of the tower started in 1961 and lasted four years. It was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother in June 1966
Entry to the building was originally made by a wide 'bridge' between fountains over a shallow pool area in front of the building. This pool was eventually drained and covered over when it was found that strong down drafts of wind hitting the building on gusty days caused the fountain to soak people entering and exiting the building
Although I have been in Sheffield for 22 years I have never been in the Arts Tower
