Heritage at Risk

ADSUK now has a dedicated heritage Preservation Committee. The aim of the committee will be to support existing campaigns calling for the retention or restoration of notable UK buildings constructed between 1925 & 1950. We will also support listing applications and continue to compile a list of buildings at risk.

Meet the committee.

Contact ADSUK Preservation by emailing preservation@artdecosociety.uk
