The British Twentieth Century Society (C20) have announced a forthcoming conference in London on Postmodernism. Speakers including Sir Terry Farrell, Piers Gough and Charles Holland (Ordinary Architecture) will join Alan Powers, Emily Gee and Elain Harwood of Historic England to "raise the profile of Britain’s best Postmodernist buildings following concerns over proposed changes to leading examples of this much maligned style."

"Sir James Stirling’s No.1 Poultry, Sir Terry Farrell’s 69 Leadenhall, and key parts of the Broadgate development have been turned down for listing, despite strong advocacy from the C20 Society, backed by leading academics and members of the architectural profession. Without a major change of heart the best PoMo buildings of recent decades will be gone forever before they can be understood and appreciated."

C20 Society Director Catherine Croft commented: “Unless we can turn around recent trends, we seriously risk obliterating Britain’s best PoMo heritage. The threat to PoMo currently far exceeds even that faced by Brutalist buildings; we urgently need to build professional and public understanding of this much maligned and misrepresented architecture.”
