The science of concrete
with Professor Philip Purnel, University of Leeds

Every year, around 4 tons of concrete is made for every man, woman and child on the planet - around 30 billion tonnes. More than all other man-made artefacts put together, concrete literally underpins the development of modern urbanisation. It is ubiquitous and essential, yet its manufacture is often accused of causing more than its fair share of carbon emissions. Phil Purnell examines what we mean by a ‘fair share’, and shows that the impacts of concrete are outweighed by its advantages.

The Dean Clough Lego brick model
The Dean Clough Lego brick model will eventually use around a million bricks, be 35 foot long and have a chimney that's over 7 foot high.

RIGHT NOW, though, it's a 'mere' 15 foot long... and actually it's still pretty stunning.

Lego modellers Michael LeCount and Tony Priestman are at present studiously crafting the landscape around the East end of the half-mile site that used to be the world's largest carpet mill. You can see how it is progressing - for free - at any time during the normal gallery hours of 9.30am to 5.00pm, seven days a week.
