Review of the year: ON WITH THE OLD

Listings minister Tony Banks listed Sir Denys Lasdun's Royal College of Physicians Grade I in April. He followed this up in June with a Grade II* listing for London Zoo's Snowdon Aviary (above), designed by Snowdon, Cedric Price and Frank Newby. Not to be outdone, his successor, Alan Howarth, listed 28 post-war church buildings in September. These included Tower Hamlets' Trinity Methodist church, by Handisyde and Stark, for 1951's Festival of Britain.
