    Looks pretty cool, apart from the annoying psytrance hippies

  • psytrance hippies from all over the world take over my city during the summer months, rest of the year we only get old russians tourists

  • Some more photos of my city Aberdeen, Scotland:

    University of Aberdeen (founded 1495, it's the 5th oldest university in the English speaking world):

    Town house on the city's main shopping street:

    Where I Live

    I live in the beautiful Sheffield! The 4th largest city in England and the greenest city in Europe. It is associated with it's famous steelworks throughout the industrial revolution and also is home to the World's oldest football club Sheffield FC.

    I've grown up in Sheffield as it left it's industrial past behind and began to create a more appealing Sheffield.


    (One of Sheffield's greatest landmarks, The Tinsley Cooling Towers take their final bow. The Cooling Towers stood alongside the M1 and was the greeting to everyone coming into Sheffield before 2008)


    (Sheffield Train Station)


    (Beyond the cooling towers is Meadowhall Shopping Centre. 'Meadow-hell' as many call it, rakes it a hell of a lot of money though)


    (The city lays very close to The Peak District - The World's second most popular national park.)


    (Sheffield's excellent Tram service)


    (Sheffield Peace Gardens in the foreground, The Town Hall behind it.)


    (Sheffield also holds the World snooker Championship)



    Visit one day ;)

    Sheffield <3

    I think people are very unfair about cooling towers, and brutalist/functional architecture in general. Having grown up in the Midlands I can't help loving the industrial and very 'unnatural' environment I live in. It might be a stark and damaged beauty, but I find it beautiful nethertheless. Whilst I can't offer any informed opinions about cooling towers regarding their environmental impact or the effects of living close to such dramatic structures, I actually sort of like them. To me they look like an enormous Katja Strunz sculpture, or a site of alien pre-human worship.

    Maybe i'm just a bit weird... ;p

  • I'm jealous of you lot that live in the UK and in European nations with awesome, old-school buildings. New Zealand is only just over 150 years old, and most of our older buildings were torn down and replaced with new ones. It's sad. I love old buildings.

    Leave my a's alone.

    Could be worse. The biggest building in my town is only 4 stories high and ugly. Actually, everything about this town sucks.

  • Is it just me or does there seem to be too many Scottish people on this forum?

    I used to love those cooling towers so I'm not gunna call you weird at all :P

    Around 10,000 people saw their destruction. It kinda put some perspective on how much of a loved landmark they were.
