Coventry University Library Ventilation Towers

Coventry University's Library Rooftop
Coventry University offers yet another fascinating building for us to view with amazement. This photograph of the library was taken from the 15th floor of the University car park next door.  Each tower is a source of natural ventilation to the building.  You can also see one of the lightwells (looks like a greenhouse), designed to provide natural lighting.   The building opened in 2000 and is named after Frederick William Lanchester, who made important contributions to automotive engineering in Coventry.

PS.  Looking out my window now...that blue sky has disappeared.

I would never have guessed what they were. This building was not here when I last visited the city.
