McAslan in effort to save Pimlico School

  • Comment
John McAslan has rushed to the defence of John Bancroft's under-threat Pimlico School, joining a long line of campaigners who have attempted to save it.

The architect has approached Bancroft to work up plans that prove the famous building could be saved, given the right refurbishment programme and associated development to finance the scheme.

McAslan told the AJ: 'We demonstrated a way that the building could be restored; a way that this quality landmark could be saved.'

Bancroft has expressed his enthusiasm towards working with McAslan, although it looks increasingly likely that the building will be razed to the ground. A planning brief which included the option of demolishing the building was ratified by Westminster Council earlier this month.

Other building professionals who have tried over the years to save the condemned structure include structural engineer Alan Baxter, Arup Acoustics founder Derek Sugden and building services guru Max Fordham.
