The Conservation of Post-1945 Architecture in Great Britain

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract / Description of output

This essay has two objectives. First, it briefly surveys the mechanisms that exist for the protection of post-1945 architectural heritage in Britain. It then turns to two themes which demonstrate how the system works in practice, and the challenges (and opportunities) that it presents. While there have been some notable successes, there have also been some prominent and highly contentious losses. The essay concludes that the future of this kind of architecture is dependent on maintaining the alliance of historians, conservation professionals and the wider interested public that has underpinned preservation efforts to date.
