The University of London hereby records its sincere apologies that the plans of this building were settled without due consultation with the Russell family and their trustees and therefore without their approval of its design.
Immediately below this plaque is another: 'Civic Trust Award, 1998'.
Site: Russell family v. University of London (1 memorial)
WC1, Thornhaugh Street, Clore Management Centre
The Russell family owned the land on which this building was erected and sold it but retained the right to approve, or not, the design of the building frontage. IanVisits has more details.
