University of Salford, Maxwell Building
University of Salford, Maxwell Building
Salford participated in the huge post-war expansion of British Universities, and a number of new steel frame and glass teaching and administrative blocks were added to the campus at The Crescent through the 1960s. The first of these, and the most prominent, is the Maxwell Building, which stands opposite the Peel Building across University Square. Designed by CH Simmons of the Lancashire County Architects Department, it was constructed 1959-60 on the high level section of Peel Park to the east of the Salford Museum and Art Gallery. It is a dominant presence in the vicinity and forms an imposing landmark, defining the eastern edge of University Square.
