Patrick Hodgkinson took his opposition to plans to list his Brunswick Centre building in Bloomsbury to new heights last week during a TV programme on the subject. Hodgkinson told Seven Days on lwt last Sunday he was fighting listing because the Brunswick was 'never completed', and that following being 'given the boot' by McAlpine's, specifications were cut. 'They just left this very cheap concrete just to go dirty and cut a whole lot of building elements as well, just to save money,' he said. Hodgkinson's £20 million plans to update the building, including painting it cream ('cream is indigenous to London'), are for Allied London. But the Twentieth Century Society wants the building listed, as revealed by the AJ (3.2.00). The issue is under consideration by the arts minister Alan Howarth.
