Renold Building 

Location: Manchester, UK 
Architect: W.A.Gibbon, Cruikshank and Seward 
Completed: 1962
Status: Closed / 
Brief Overview: 

The Renold Building stands as a remarkable architectural composition, featuring a 2-storey base and a 6-storey tower crowned with a glass-enclosed external stairwell. Its moniker pays homage to Sir Charles Renold, an esteemed engineer and former vice-president of the Manchester College of Science and Technology. While not officially listed, the Renold Building (designed by Cruikshank and Seward in 1962) holds the distinction of being the pioneering example of its kind within the UK—a comprehensive structure dedicated to housing lecture theaters and seminar rooms. An early adopter of the tower and podium layout, it's heralded for its zig-zag curtain wall, a roof inspired by Niemeyer, and an acclaimed mural by Victor Pasmore. Among the proposed changes in the SRF is the potential removal of the Renold Building's podium to facilitate the creation of a new residential block, aligning with the SRF's emphasis on increased building density.
