Cubes, curves and cathedral

Minster and monster? This shows part of the modern extension to the University of York St John with the cathedral twin towers in the centre. I really enjoy the new architecture every time I pass. There are so many pleasing features, not least the type of brick. The cuboids above and contours below form a bold but satisfying contrast, as does the wave of brick flowing away from a line of 19th century terraced houses. The link takes you to the Lord Mayor's Walk side of the development.
