Does St. Helen's(Aviva Tower) really have to face its destiny(London again)?

St. Helen's is the International style skyscraper. This building is going to be replaced by 1 Undershaft, but the same fate with 6~8 Bishopsgate.

There's the buildings in London has gone:
Former 122 Leadenhall Street --> Leadenhall Building(Cheesegrater)
Former 20 Fenchurch Street --> Walkie-Talkie Building
Southwalk Towers --> The Shard & The Place

Want to say Goodbye with this 'survivor'?

It's a shame that we're losing one of the few good examples of an International Style tower in the city (possibly the only really good one). But at the same time there are only so many places to build here, and this building hasn't yet been listed for preservation.
There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov
