Abertay University in Dundee by the Parr Partnership is the university's first purpose-designed building, and is clad in reconstituted sandstone and curtainwalling. The tower sheltering the entrance recalls Scottish Baronial buildings, while the high-tech perforated-fabric entrance canopy is firmly modern in idiom. The lending library, reference section and journal collections occupy the large crescent-shaped open areas on each floor, fronted to the south by the sweep of the curved curtainwall elevation - an energy wall with fixed louvres which reduces solar gain and provides protection from glare. Staff rooms, study rooms and services are ranged along the north side of the building.
