Plaza, Claypit Lane, Leeds
The expansion of universities has led to a need to accommodate all the extra students and in Leeds they've gone high. Built in 2006, designed by Carey Jones Architects, this is accommodation for Leeds Metropolitan University. It's clad in aluminium and looks quite impressive in a photo, but less so when seen in the flesh. One has a suspicion that in ten or twenty years, assuming it's still standing, people will grumble about it in much the same way as they now grumble about 1960s towers.
