It looks...umh...fortress-like, Tom!
Tom Wilson: It does indeed - I hope to see inside next time.

Not really warm & cuddly is it Tom. I'm not sure it fits in with the building beyond either..
Tom Wilson: Actually, it tones in quite well with the earlier building.
And I thought the Hive in Worcester was ugly!
Tom Wilson: I guess this one is bigger and uglier, Bill.

Stalinist-looking indeed, but nevertheless impressive. I hope the books are open for free, worldwide, liberal research.
Tom Wilson: Oh, indeed - I know the Librarian and he is a thoroughly modern librarian smile

I really understand what you mean by "Stalinist-looking", that's it!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Anne
The treatment is excellent for the building. The building looks attractive to me.
Tom Wilson: It is certainly imposing - I'm looking forward to seeing inside on my next visit.
is certainly does look like something from the Stalin era in the way you have presented it.
Tom Wilson: Yes - I thought the presentation was appropriate for the building smile
