^ I love this project. The new roof is quite expressive and exciting, yet still sensible to the old buildings.
That's how a combination of contemporary and classical (industrial) architecture should be like!

What are the scheduled improvements to the public realm for London Wall? I remember walking along the highway and reaching a point without pavements, suddenly.

The pedways (elevated walkways) are being gradually removed throughout the city of London , however the Barbican will always remain given its listed status.

There will still be pedways from Moorgate to the Barbican and through London wall place after the development.

Buildings can be de-listed. Listing status gives buildings a degree of protection from redevelopment, but it isn't the sort of eternal preservation protection you seem to think it is. The Barbican estate will be redeveloped at some point. In time, I imagine most of the low rise elements will go and the site opened up. Although better than most 60s housing, there’s still an awful lot wrong with it. Ditto Balfron Tower at Blackwall.

Yes buildings can be delisted however you seem to forget that the sort of people who reside there have considerable media clout , any attempt to de-list it would result in a back lash that would make the Blossom Street seem like a ripple current.

Your argument which you put across was robustly deafted on the Barbican thread on speakers corner.

Besides the Barbican should absolutely stay , rather that an some dull glass boxes.

Mr Cladding, you have a nasty habit of dressing up your opinion as fact. I suggest you stick to facts, and keep your opinion/agendas out of the construction sections of the forum.

For the record, Listed buildings can be delisted, for example if they have been demolished, burned down beyond repair, or stripped off their character defining elements, or if the reasons for designation were found not to have been correct for whatever reason. (I recall a medieval style farmhouse type building in Norfolk was delisted when the owner informed EH he had built the house a few years ago using a historic type look and recycled materials.)

However, listing does not prevent a building from being demolished. Listing simply means that the building/site has heritage values and fabric of significance and that any planning application for alteration or demolition needs to take into account this heritage/historic significance and justify any loss of the heritage elements, character etc. Some listed buildings are demolished every year for a wide variety of reasons, including Grade I buildings. They are not delisted until after demolition as they never lost the reasons for designation - but usually its considered that there was no viable option to save the building - usually for financial and/or functional reasons.

The most famous case in central London of the demolition of a Grade I building in recent decades was the Mappin & Webb building in 1994, to make way for No.1 Poultry, which was considered a finer design - this demolition went to the appeal courts.

I expect major improvements to the public realm there to accompany proposals for a new 'Centre for Music'.

If the Barbican was anywhere else I'd not mind it, but in London I see it as a big tumour. Some people seem to adore it so, it's just how it is.
