With an "uncompromising frame of big squares and four storeys". By Thomas Worthington, 1960, and extended in 1968. Built for the University of Manchester Institute for Science and Technology and now used as a conference centre.
In front is a stone monument (roughly central) unveiled in 2004 to "commemorate 180 years of educational excellence at UMIST". It was unveiled less than a month before UMIST merged with the University of Manchester.
