This is the ceiling of Birmingham Symphony Hall. It’s a great place for music and shows and all of that sort of thing – but it’s also basically the only quiet coffee shop in the city centre – great for getting some work done!
Another from Birmingham University campus, one of the newer buildings. I really liked this angle of it, with the overhead walkway and the planters leading off into the distance.
I am pretty sure there aren’t 5 days left in the month… so I will have to go back and check through to true them all up! In honour of this, let’s have some mathematical geometry based architecture.
Birmingham University has been having some work done as well, and this is one of their newest buildings. It’s becoming such a wonderful mix of the new styles and the old redbrick.
The new station building has always been impressive. The screen, like a giant eye surrounded by chrome-like skin.
A bit of a rushed take as I was hurrying through the city centre. It was a long day and I was keen to get home.
I pass this every morning getting to work and I have always thought it’d be a good subject. I guess I have just been waiting for no cars and good lighting! It’s at an orthodontists, weirdly.
So many buildings go out of use. It’s reasonable to expect that people loved these buildings. People may have fought against their closure. It’s particularly horrible when the shell of it is just left behind for years.
I was wandering around my local high street today and happened to go to ‘the other side.’ Also known as the nicer bit. It really is nice around there. Pictured is the bridge which marks the start of a walkway following an old railway line. Sorry this one’s late!
I was playing imposter student today as I went, with my partner, to one of the university bars for pizza, cider and chat. Good fun, good times. But breaking away from the main party you’re reminded that it’s an old building you’re in, despite the modern bar interior.
