DescriptionPhoto taken from atop one of the unversity buildings under construction, looking out across a road, towards another four buildings which are nearing completion (the last building has a worker still laying bricks on the top layer. There is scaffolding around the three buildings in a row, on the other side of the road - the two on the right hand side have many of their windows installed and the one on the right has none yet. The fourth building, behind these three, has the top floor windows visible and a taller section of scaffolding rising above it on the right. On the left of the three buildings in a row is an open field/ grassy space with a short hedgerow cutting into it. On the near side of the road, are more buildings under construction with piles of bricks dotted around the area and a scaffolding rail in front of where the photographer is. Before the rail are brick stacks and a small, flat board propped up on two bricks, holding a pile of mortar. On the other side of the rail and lower than the level at which the photographer is, a worker is bent over a wooden plank inside a building which has been divided up into sections with some flooring laid down inside. In the background, a hilly area surrounded with trees and containing residential houses, is visible. The sky is cloudy.
