A bit of history
Wrexham Glyndŵr University’s main building was officially opened in 1953. The prospect of further conflict following the end of the Second World War greatly influenced its functional design – a nuclear bunker was incorporated underneath the building, and all the corridors and doors were designed so it could be turned into a hospital if needed.
The tiles used in the building's main foyer were designed especially for the space by Peggy Angus (1904 – 1993), one of the 20th Century’s greatest ceramicists. Installed in the late 1950s, and still in place today, the Grade II listed tiles cover two walls in the reception area, extending up two storeys, and have a strong Welsh theme with dragons, leeks and mountains.
