Your very good health

The Finsbury Health Centre is 76-years young and, it seems, is as much loved today as it was when it opened in 1938

This was emphatically proven at a debate at the Royal Academy earlier this month, where the Twentieth Century Society voted Berthold Lubetkin’s centre the greatest building of the past 100 years.

The health centre saw off competition from London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall and the Byker Estate in Newcastle.

Conservation and hospital expert John Allan from Avanti Architects agreed with the decision: ‘It stands for everything I believe in. This is why it is my greatest building of the century.’
