British Medical Association Building

Located at 429 the Strand in London, the British Medical Association (BMA) Building was once the home of the British Medical Association (which moved to the new BMA House in 1925). The Building was designed by Charles Holden and is now home to Embassy of Zimbabwe (and previously it was Rhodesia House). Jacob Epstein was commissioned to design sculptures to adorn the house to represent the development of science. These nude statues, however, drew public outcry over moral propriety. They were mutilated in 1930 under the guise that the deteriorating sculptures posed a hazard to pedestrians.
