taken 7 years ago, near to Manchester, Great Britain

Faraday Tower, Sackville Street, Manchester
Faraday Tower, Sackville Street, Manchester
One of several bold post-war buildings for the former University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology. Of concrete, by H.M. Fairhurst, 1967. It is joined by a bridge over Sackville Street to a lower block (right, SJ8497 : Maths and Social Science Building and Faraday Building, Sackville Street, Manchester).
It has traditionally housed Chemistry, but since UMIST's merger with the University of Manchester in 2004, its future seems uncertain. It is named after Michael Faraday, esteemed chemist and physicist best known for his work on electromagnetism.
