Birmingham Central Library (John Madin Design Group, 1974)
BRUTAL BRUM architectural series by space_play.
This is the second building within the concrete series to be released.

A free-standing sculpture cast by hand in solid concrete, stamped on reverse with space_play logo. John Madin's Birmingham Central Library was demolished in 2016 and so was sadly lost as an icon example of British Brutalist architecture. The architecture design was nationally recognised and after many attempts to get listing status to preserve the building the City Council gave permission to demolish and redevelop the site. John Madin's designs help to transform Birmingham in the 1960's and 1970's and this concrete sculpture commemorates the controversial but spectacular architecture of his Central Library.
