Your University, One Photo at a Time

Triangle of Excellence

Triangle of ExcellenceOne of the newest sections of the University of Glasgow is located at the western end of the campus, a triangular medical compound with the three corners made up of the Wolfson Medical School Building, the BHF Glasgow Cardiovascular Research Centre, and the Glasgow Biomedical Research Centre (Sir Graeme Davies Building).

The land where the three buildings now stand was previously occupied by Victorian tenements, which were demolished to make way for five-storey residences for nurses and others employed at the Western Infirmary just across the street. These were demolished in 2000 to make way for what has been described as the University’s ‘triangle of excellence’, comprised of the three aforementioned buildings.

The building reflected on the glass walls of the Wolfson Medical School Building above is the Boyd Orr Building, built some 30 years earlier.
