Read all about it in Wikipedia The second highest building in the city (until 2009 it was the highest) and the highest academic building in the country. No one liked working in it, because the finish was not very good - window frames rattled, and let in drafts, and the building moved in gale force winds. Those problems may have been cured by the refurbishment that took a couple of years, during which the building was empty. I had a picture of it at the time. The design principles appear to copy those of the Seagram building in New York - but this was denied by the architects (well, they would, wouldn't they? :-) But, the Seagram building was finished, I think, in 1958 and this was started in 1961 - bit of a coincidence.
