The Manchester Town Hall and Central Library complex in Manchester, U.K., comprises three of the city’s most iconic buildings situated in the heart of its bustling center, providing a stunning juxtaposition of eclectic architectural genres comprising the Grade 1-listed Victorian Neo Gothic Town Hall, designed by Alfred Waterhouse and completed in 1877. The edifice was subsequently complemented by E. Vincent Harris’ combined undertaking of the Classical Pantheon-inspired circular Central Public Library, which opened in 1934. This, in turn, was followed by the dramatic Neo Gothic Town Hall Extension, finished in 1938. The latter building has since served as the Manchester City Council’s municipal headquarters.
