Yorkshire Artspace Persistence Works Studios
Persistence Works, designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley Architects, was the UK’s first purpose-built studio complex for artists and craftspeople. The building is right in the city centre about 2 minutes walk from the station. Persistence Works has studio space for around 70 artists in 53 studios over 6 floors as well as a gallery, office and meeting room. Since being built in 2000/1, it has been the winner of an RIBA Award, an RIBA Yorkshire White Rose award and a Civic Trust Award Commendation. The building was also a finalist in the Prime Ministers’ Better Public Building Awards in 2002.
