Allan Johnson was an architect by profession who worked for Lanchester & Lodge, a London practice with a long association with the University of Leeds. During the 1950s he worked on the 'Man-Made Fibres' building (now Clothworkers’ South) taking the lead on commissioning Mitzi Cunliffe’s sculpture. His huge sculptural relief sits on the front of the Mechanical Engineering building at the University of Leeds, completed in 1963 by Johnson, by then a lead partner at Lanchester & Lodge. In 2016, the sculpture was listed Grade II by Historic England as a well designed and successful piece of public art utilising modern techniques to enhance a streetscape dominated by University buildings.
