Hexagon Tower, Delaunays Road, Manchester
That Richard Seifert got everywhere. He and his partners designed this in 1971 for ICI as a research building. It stands quite aloof from, and is a startling sight amid, its prevalent bland, low-rise surroundings. The exterior modules are "arrow-shaped, linking together to leave hexagonal windows in deep reveals" (SD8502 : Detail of Hexagon Tower, Delaunays Road, Manchester). The benzene ring, foundation for all synthetic dyes, is hexagonal.
It is now in multiple occupancy.
