The "Information Commons"

 

A sadly misnamed building in the University of Sheffield - it's actually one of the buildings of the university library.  A "commons" means open to all and, of course, this building isn't open to all :-)

Maybe you should take this up with them Tom...Its a pretentious name. I quite like the building though, it deserves better.
Tom Wilson: Yes, I think it is quite a good building, although I've never been in! Must get round to it one day.
I don't know that I've ever seen a building that color... for some reason this reminds me of Frank Lloyd Wright...
Tom Wilson: It is certainly unusual!
Pas très jolie cette couleur pour un bâtiment.
Tom Wilson: Oui, je l'aime, aussi.

Adventurous architecture definitely Tom

Bet they wouldn't let me in..
Tom Wilson: Oh, you might be able to get a temporary reader's ticket smile
Somehow this sums up the world we live in. Language misused
Tom Wilson: It gets worse, doesn't it!?

That’s right Tom, you give them a ticking off.
Tom Wilson: I did point this out when it was mooted, but...
I can't say that it is the most attractive of buildings.
Tom Wilson: Better than some on the campus, Brian!
