EH 'biased' over Robin Hood Gardens, expert claims


Is Robin Hood Gardens of architectural and/or historic interest? Of course it is, and however much EH wriggles, it knows that in refusing a listing it ignored the advice of its own expert panel on post-war architecture. Selective criticism was used to back up the view of its then minister, Tessa Jowell, who said her constuents did not like this sort of design. Her confusion of statutory responsibility with aesthetic prejudice was as disappointing then as EH's ostrich attitude is now.
