THE team who created the Queensgate Market in Huddersfield reunited under its incredible roof.
Architect Kenneth Wood, sculptor Fritz Steller, engineer Colin Prior and glazing designer Malcolm Dobson met beneath the striking `flying' roof for the first time in decades - invited by conservation group Huddersfield Gem.
Huddersfield Gem organised the event to galvanise support for the building which was threatened with demolition in some of the schemes draw up for Kirklees Council for the wholesale redevelopment of the library and art gallery, piazza and multi-storey car park.
English Heritage recommended to the Government that Queensgate Market be listed and preserved.
Chris Marsden, of Huddersfield Gem, said of yesterday's gathering: "It's a chance for people to learn about the market. It's so they can share their knowledge about the concept."
He added: "Huddersfield Gem recognise that the building is a unique combination of architecture, engineering and art."
Each of the free-standing `roofs' of asymmetric hyperbolic paraboloids sways in the wind.
The windows have been fitted to move two inches while water is funnelled down the central pillars.
Supporters call it a landmark building.
The architects, J Seymour Harris, and designers and builders were creating a completely new concept.
