Bubbles-love it

UTS ( University of Technology, Sydney) is not the most beautiful campus, voted most ugly building in Sydney last year I think, but it does have its nice bits-someone blowing bubbles in the sunshine on the green. Incidentally the interior of tower one was designed so that when sitting in the class room you couldn't see outside. This was to prevent distraction from study. Unfortunately some of the best views in Sydney are obscured therefore making it fairly ugly and straightforward on the inside too. You get to see an inspiring glimpse before you sit down, and then when you leave...

If it's any consolation it's not uglier than Durham Uni which is all brick and concrete!

Yes, it's foul, isn't it?! And to think they had plans to build two more of those ugly towers! "Gateway to the city" they were calling it... the building design won some sort of award back in the day - it was designed with the intention of quelling student protest, by making sure there were no areas where large numbers of students cound congregate and 'hatch' any revolutionary ideas...

But good things happen inspite of these limitations, which is testament to the energy and commitment of the students who pass through.
