University Hospital

1928, Proudfoot, Bird and Rawson. later additions. Newton Rd.

The architects of the university hospital selected the English Gothic for their theme, and expressed it in a 145-foot-high stone and brick tower. With the visual chaos of post-World War II additions to the hospital complex, the tower and what is left of the lower wings are quite difficult to find, let alone to see. But they are there, perhaps best observed from atop the hospital parking structure number 1.
