AJ poll: should Broadgate Square be Grade II* listed?

  • 1 Comment

On Friday (3 June) English Heritage (EH) recommended the 1980s Broadgate Square office campus in the City of London for Grade II* listing

It is now up to culture secretary Jeremy Hunt to decide whether the Arup Associates campus is ‘one of the best and most important developments of the period’ (Emily Gee, English Heritage) or ‘not wonderful, no longer fit for purpose’ and ‘not great pieces of architecture’ (Ken Shuttleworth, Make).

But what do AJ readers think? Vote using the poll in right-hand column.

  • When working on the EU-funded project, Discovering Contemporary Architecture in London, I found that Broadgate provided much needed public space in the City. Unlike other developments for all their glass and seeming transparency, Broadgate provided a welcome refuge for office workers, exhausted passers-by, and travellers from Liverpool Street wanting a breath of fresh air. Go, EH.
