Listing important modern architecture is equally important to listing the older ones.
Archers garage in Dublin, Ireland displays the fact that if a modern 'protected structure' is demolished the structure must be rebuilt as a reinstatement' and that every subsequent planning consent application is assessed as if the original building is still in existance. Therebye removing the incentive to demolish as it is a zero sum game.
I wish I had some holidays left!!!!
