It looks beautiful inside, and a real asset to the University, but it's a shame they couldn't find the extra few £1000s to add the finishing touches to the outside of the building.

All the surrounding domes have cornicing, small spires on top of the domes, and frescoes, but the Bramall building lacks these and just looks like a cheap, unfinished imitation from the outside.
