On a recent visit to the University of Sheffield, I was briefly shown this building on a campus tour, and managed to go back to take some pictures. The building is really new and houses some of the arts faculty (hence why it didn't form a large part of my visit!)

I'm keen to learn and improve so any guidance is appreciated.

@drphoto: Thanks, Dan! The outside's quite interesting too - it has panels of coloured cladding with gradual tone changes around the building.

Wonderful free flow of lines . . is this a stairway or ramp ? . . or 'just' art ? Either way, someone had fum dreaming it up !

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks, Ronnie! It's neither a staircase nor a ramp, each floor is distinct and has a hole in it (or 3 small ones in the 1st floor) that is an irregular shape and positioned to give this effect when looking down or up. It would have been the architect's idea; I haven't learnt how to design slabs with holes in yet so I'm not sure how much more awkward it was for the structural engineer!
