Cruciform Building, University College London
Cruciform Building, University College London
The Cruciform Building on Gower Street was designed by the eminent Victorian architect Alfred Waterhouse RA as a replacement for the old University College Hospital building. It is broadly in the shape of a cross (although not actually symmetrical) in a design intended to maximise ventilation - thought at the time to be a vital aid in the recovery of patients. The building was closed in 1995 and purchased by University College; it was refurbished (including the restoration of many of the original features) and is now the Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research and the Royal Free & University College Medical School. The modern University College Hospital looms behind.
