A conference organized by the Twentieth Century Society at the Building Centre, 26 Store Street, London WC1E 7BT.
With support from the Building Centre Trust
Friday 20 April 2012, 10.00-15.00
The aim of the conference is to assist the public and media by presenting well-informed opinion about the development site in the light of new opportunities, with a focus on the retention of the Grade II* listed building.
Since its closure in the early 1980s and subsequent listing (now at Grade II*), Battersea Power Station has enlarged its hold on public affection, yet the several redevelopment schemes during this time have failed to proceed, and there has been talk of freeing up the site by demolishing its landmark building.
The Twentieth Century Society is holding the event, including key players in the current situation, to get a better understanding of the underlying dynamics and pressures of the development, with the aim of showing that demolition should not be considered as an option.
The event will provide a high level briefing and discussion forum on this case at a crucial moment in its history.
Panel discussion, chaired by Loyd Grossman (Chair, Heritage Alliance)
