Knight's Walk and Central Hill are each currently subject to applications for listing and the applications are being assessed by Historic England. Cressingham Gardens was also subject to an application for listing, but this was turned down. There are very few extant examples of housing of this period of this quality and these remaining examples that are much loved by residents should be preserved and refurbished. Lambeth's argument that there is insufficient money is simply not good enough. A similar argument, that we should not stand in the way of 'progress' was used by British Rail in the 60s in support of the demolition of Euston Station (where they succeeded) and St Pancras (where they didn't).

Comment on: 51 Hills Road, Jesus College by Gort Scott
Nearly £3000/m2 for a spec office?!... Beautiful concrete yes, but at that price it cannot be considered an achievable precedent for similar developments.

Comment on: Can Jeremy Corbyn solve the housing crisis?
Corbyn seems to want policy creation to be a collaborative process with both the PLP, members/supporters and the experts of the field. If elected as leader, left leaning architects nationwide should be hammering at his team's door to influence policy. It's no good saying he doesn't have an architectural viewpoint, we have to start the conversation to let him arrive at one. I find it personally refreshing that he isn't telling us (architect) what to do (Gove).
will it actually be a café serving food as originally or just a building preserved in aspic?
