There was a very good interview with John Allan, architect and friend of Lubetkin’s in the Islington Tribune yesterday, which you can see here. We have also won the support of Alexei Sayle, comedian and long-time resident of Bloomsbury, and the interest of a very reputable preservation trust in looking at refurbishing the building on the not-for-profit model of Thorpe Combe Hospital in Walthamstow and the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill on Sea. We have also been advised by lawyers that there are solid grounds for a judicial review in the event of a decision to sell.
