First transmitted in 1988, Stephen Bayley argues that Alexander Fleming House is a building worth preserving in its original design as a monument to modernism. Erno Goldfinger's building, in London's Elephant and Castle, was designed in 1962 and for many, became a byword for soulless post-war development.
