Birmingham is a relatively young city. It was forged upon the work of the residents during the Industrial Revolution whom kept Birmingham on top of the technology ladder.
Birmingham was bombed out severely in World War II which resulted in a major regeneration scheme for the whole of Birmingham – a city which had now become a form of a blank canvas. The 1960s presented the city with opportunities unseen to the city before. Highrise estates, ringroads and new infrastructure were built for the city.
Architecturally, these are now looked at poorly but you still find the gems nestled within.
This blog aims to broadcast these architectural gems to you as well as provide a historical look at the city in a parallel fashion. It is a subject I am relatively knowledgeable on and feel that my knowledge should be shared with you.
