On the cusp - what makes a modern commercial building listable and what happens to it afterwards?

Dealing with modern architecture is perhaps the most controversial area of Historic England’s work. So how do they advise the Minister which modern commercial buildings ‘make the grade’ and should become listed? And once listed, how do they decide what is an acceptable level of change to those buildings?  What are the common issues that arise as a result of listing modern buildings?

The focus of this event will be mainly on commercial buildings: offices, hotels and institutions.
