Nottingham Modernism

I am currently in the East Midlands for the ICAME conference.  Nottingham University’s campus is the venue. It’s a beautiful, rolling hilly campus with a Modernist brute of a library near the centre. Also of note is the Trent Building which local luminary D. H. Lawrence famously dismissed.  I built up a small collection of pictures of big hulking brutes on the 34 bus into the conference this morning.  Here are some.

So, they do seem to love this kind of thing up here. Laura reported to me that she spotted men drinking in the Spoons before 10am. We can only assume they are night shift workers or just very committed to good times.
