Grimshaw’s Homebase set for demolition after government turns down listing


Not sure why the Government and Historic England seem to have it in for 1980s? This is yet another great example of / Hi-Tech Architecture which we should be saving as opposed to demolished - similar to the unique but now demolished Don Valley Stadium in Sheffield (which I worked on 30 years ago). If it was a brutalist concrete building from the 1960s, they'd have almost certainly listed it!
