This week on the BD Podcast we talk to Howells about architecture minister Margaret Hodge’s decision to list the US Embassy, and her hint at a new listing policy on 20th Century buildings.

In a BD exclusive interview, she suggested that only buildings ’fit for purpose’ should be listed, and only those which include the best examples of an architect’s work or a particular building type.

And, after the glitter of the Stirling, we look at the plunge in viewing figures. Is this just a result of the X Factor? Changes in viewing patterns? Or is a revamp of the format needed?

Also, we catch up with David Chipperfield ahead of the opening of his new exhibition at the Design Museum, Form Matters, and ask what the exhibition is trying to achieve.
