Keble College and English Heritage have combined in an odd way in the proposed demolition of part of abk's 1970 building for the college, given that it was listed Grade II* only last October. As aj noted (13 January), Lord Rogers is a fan of what he has described in print as a 'truly sophisticated twentieth-century complex', which 'adroitly avoided a head-on collision with the central Butterfield building' in a design of 'clarity and sensitive complexity'. He also praised the 'informed' patron. The architect of the scheme which involves demolishing the smallest of the abk blocks, Rick Mather, has himself already designed one excellent building for Keble and he must know the issues that are involved. Surely second thoughts are in order.
