Roger Stevens fire escape. Leeds University, October 2014.
okay but fuck the roger stevens building
I mean it’s kind of pretty in that brutalist kind of way (apparently one of the old episodes of dr who had a scene filmed in one of the corridors) but legend goes that it was designed after the 1968 student unrest in france, and it was supposedly designed to be un-riotable, meaning weird, impractically long/shallow steps on the stairs, thin corridors, really narrow lecture theatre doors that open inwards and annoy everyone who’s already in the room… that building is gonna be a nightmare if there’s a fire.
the pond is nice though
