In balance

One of several modern sculptures dotted around Bradford University's campus, this one is called 'In Balance'. Designed by Richard Thornton and constructed in stainless steel and bronze, it is a loose depiction of a globe, with different segments finely balanced on each other. The etched surfaces suggest some of the different areas of study within the university.


  1. I'm a big fan of having sculptures dotted around a university campus. Not only is it healthy to have art within touching distance, but these pieces often serve as useful reference points for anyone navigating their way around an unfamiliar institution.

    1. I think this one will have featured on more than a few graduation photographs, as it's quite near the main entrance.

  2. I usually like sculptures but this one doesn't do much for me.
