It definitely has come a long way. I remember how it looked when Alumni and CENTRIM moved in in 2013/14. When I went to my job interview there I thought I had been sent to an abandoned building, there was upturned furniture all over the place and the windows were so dirty I couldn’t see through them. There was even a room of ancient computers on the ground floor. And the spaghetti junction of cables reminded me of a scene from Alien. It was definitely an odd experience.
I love how the building looks now. My favourite parts are the cabinets built in to some of the walls with Screen Archive Southeast exhibits and the concrete-looking pillars. It is a stunning transformation.
