Discussion Tower Block Development, Guy's Hospital, London by G. Mould

Mr. G. Mould: When completed, the tower block at Guy’s Hospital will be an extraordinary building, not because it incorporates any sensational new structural concepts nor because it is a particularly bizarre piece of architecture. This is the first time that a 32 storey hospital has been produced in this country, and there are few abroad either. I have not tried to present a highly technical description of the structural design of a highrise building, but I have emphasized the structural engineer’s contribution, as part of a team, to meeting the accommodation requirements of a very wide crosssection of the medical profession, and at the same time meeting the physical requirements of the planning authorities.
