Finsbury Health Centre, Pine Street, Finsbury, London, seen in its urban context

Lubetkin & Tecton
NOTES: The Finsbury Health Centre was an attempt to rationalize the borough's health provision by providing on a single site a wide range of facilities, the needs of some of which could alter radically with time. Tecton's masterly solution to the complex circulation patterns such a multi-functional building entailed was hailed by architectural and medical critics alike as a prototype and a radical break with traditional health provision. The building is Grade I listed and was partly restored in the 1990s.
