Charles Jencks singles the building out in the 'Architecture of the Jumping Universe'. He writes "I do not believe any historical labels do justice to the synthetic thinking behind the building which borrows as much from the contemporary pavilion planning of Frank Gehry as the tradition of thin industrial structures.".

The Queens Building is very popular in the locality and won the Dyos prize for the best building in Leicestershire. Architecture Today nominated it as one of the ten most significant buildings of the last decade.
