The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Lost Buildings

Lost Buildings is a project by graphic designer and recent Sheffield Institute of Arts graduate June Leung. It remembers Sheffield’s brutalist heritage by retracing the outlines of three of the city's iconic modern structures. Tracings of each building and information about their architects will be encased in concrete plinths at each site, superimposing Sheffield's brutalist past on its present landscape.

The plinths will be in place throughout Sheffield Modern architecture weekender, Friday 26th-Sunday 28th October. See maps of the three locations below.

The Egg Box (1977 Town Hall extension) – architect Jan Kot

The Wedding Cake (Sheffield Register Office) – architect Jan Kot

Castle Market – architects J.L. Womersley and Andrew Derbyshire
