With its roof made up of 21 asymmetric hyperbolic paraboloid shells, Queensgate Market forms a dramatic space full of natural light. English Heritage has called it the best surviving example of a retail market from the 1960s and 70s, a key exemplar of a building type that is currently under particular threat. As such the building has now been Grade II listed. The exterior of the building comprises natural stone, exposed concrete and nine relief panels all individually sculpted by the artist Fritz Steller.
