The view from my office window.
On the extreme left is the corner of the main University library, whilst the building on the right hosts the archive of John Ruskin (1819-1900). The area of very green grass was the University bowling green until the main Library was extended and the Ruskin Library was built, both in the mid-Nineties. The low roof in the trees is the new (2003) University Health Centre.
I'm intrigued by the pattern of light in the glass end wall of the Ruskin Library. The west-facing wall of the main library features huge vertical louvres shielding readers from direct afternoon sunlight. I presume the pattern is the result of those vertical lines being reflected in slightly imperfect panes of glass.
