Millennium Square is situated between two of Sheffield’s most popular public spaces, the Peace Gardens and Winter Garden, and was designed by architects Allies and Morrison.
It contains a piece of public art called Rain, created by sculptor Colin Rose. The sculpture features 9 large Sheffield stainless steel spheres varying in sizes up to 2m in diameter, which were intended to suggest drops of rain that have just landed on the surface of the square.
They sparkle at night due to dozens of colour changing LED lights set in the paving, and into the rim of the pools under each of the steel ball ‘raindrops’.
