The Urban Ballet of Preston Bus Station

Preston Bus StationVoices in support of Preston Bus Station are multiplying by the day and the Society’s fight to save the building¬†continues. Three weeks ago the World Monuments Fund accepted our bid and included the bus station in its 2012 Watch List. We nominated Preston Bus Station as one of three representatives¬†of British Brutalism – a very special architectural style that is particularly important in Britain, but currently under threat of extinction by short-sighted prejudice and misunderstanding.

Yesterday a short video that wonderfully celebrates the ‘urban ballet’ of Preston Bus Station was posted on the web and this is a true delight! Let’s hope we can all enjoy more creative gestures like this and, most importantly, the building itself for many years to come!
