Feature #45 English Heritage exhibition: Almost Lost: London's Buildings Loved and Loathed



Almost Lost: London's Buildings Loved and Loathed is an English Heritage exhibition highlighting threats to London's historic buildings from redevelopment at various points throughout the twentieth century. Renders, models and drawings show how London may be today if it was not for the hard work of campaigners and conservation organisations. Projects include successful campaigns against the redevelopment of Piccadilly Circus, Whitehall, Soho, Covent Garden and the protection of Battersea Power Station. 

The exhibition is open 4th December 2013 until 2nd February 2014 and is set on the top two floors of Wellington Arch (by Decimus Burton 1826-30), Apsley way, Hyde Park Corner, London,W1J 7JZ.
