These type of buildings need to be saved. If these buildings are destroyed, we will one day look back as a society and wonder why we ever let it happen. Look at the resurgence of Art Deco design for example. In the 1980s we were knocking them down!!! Now people pay huge prices to own an example of that type of architecture!!!

There will be no "Modernist" buildings left as heritage in 100 years and everyone will say where did they go? They were let go in the early 21t century when people forgot to cherish the value in design & distinction of different eras. Old sandstone buildings are important but they are not the only type of heritage to protect

I can't understand why something beautiful would be destroyed when it could be restored for cheaper. So many times beautiful buildings and structures have been demolished and were regretted later on. Please think about restoring it instead.

Robb College deserves to be protected and revered just as other great buildings at UNE are, like Booloominbah.
