Synopsis

Since 1987 more than 300 buildings have been listed for their special architectural and historic interest. From humble prefabs to the colossal Park Hill, Sheffield, the range of listed buildings is staggering. This book lists all of them. Sir Albert Richardson's Bracken House, built for the Financial Times in 1955-59, was the first post-war building to be officially listed, when it was threatened with demolition. Listing led to its remodelling by Michael Hopkins in 1989-91, a demonstration of how the conservation process can inspire radical architectural interventions. Subsequent listings have been prompted by requests from the public when a building is threatened, or from detailed studies by building type. Buildings range from traditional works by Raymond Erith and Donald McMorran and many of the 'pop icons' of the 1960s such as Centre Point, to internationally outstanding modern works like Stirling and Gowans' Leicester Engineering Building and Foster Associates' offices for Willis Faber Dumas in Ipswich.
