Buildings at risk

The Risk List is the Societies’ annual compilation of the top 10 most threatened twentieth and twenty-first century buildings across the UK.

Our 2023 list includes a Bengali women’s centre in London’s East End, a brutalist John Lewis store in Scotland, a set of modernist power station cooling towers in the Midlands, and a 1980’s avant-garde pop pyramid in Milton Keynes, demonstrating the extraordinary breadth of architectural styles that characterised the period.

The Risk List also encourages members of the public to get involved, with specific actions to help save each building – from writing to an MP or the Secretary of State, to joining grassroots campaigns fighting for their local buildings. In marginal cases, your voice really can make the difference.
