Sheffield's Digital Campus sees first slide

A Sheffield office block has become the first building in the UK to permanently install a giant slide for visitors and employees.

Designed by Josef Wiegand, the man behind the slides for Carsten Höller's installation at the Tate Modern in London in 2006-07, the 30m, three-storey slide will take people from the top of the building's atrium to the ground-floor reception area in five to seven seconds.

The building is the first of five new blocks built to form Sheffield's new Digital Campus and will be installed over the summer.

The building is due to open in the autumn.
