A close up section of the Nottingham Contemporary Arts Centre, Weekday Cross, Lace Market, Nottingham. The low sun casts interesting shadows with the geometry of the building. The building was designed by the award winning architects Caruso St John. They were inspired by the surrounding Lace Market, and the bold and elegant design of the warehouses used for the city's world famous trade in the 19th century. It is composed of large concrete panels embossed with a giant lace pattern. The building is unusually transparent; large windows offer direct views from the street into the galleries, shop, cafe etc.
