Meeting on Brunswick would be welcome

  • Comment

The Twentieth Century Society was rather dismayed at the tone of the article on the long-awaited decision to list the Brunswick Centre (AJ 21.9.00).Professor Hodgkinson may not agree with us that his masterpiece is worthy of listing, and may find our comments to be 'embarrassing', whatever he means by that.

However, the society found it very interesting to read that Allied London chief executive Mike Ingall had tried to set up meetings on countless occasions to discuss our reservations to their scheme. It is news to us. . . we always welcome the opportunity to meet with architects and developers, to discuss our comments at an early stage of the application and work towards reaching a compromise agreeable by all parties.

The last meeting with Professor Hodgkinson took place on 6 July 1999 and we can assure you that neither Allied London nor its architect has approached the Twentieth Century Society since with a view to a meeting.

In fact, we are writing to Mike Ingall and Professor Hodgkinson to invite them to discuss a more positive way forward.

Emmanuelle Morgan, caseworker for the Brunswick Centre, Twentieth Century Society
