Buildings that Shaped Birmingham

Yesterday the concluding part of ‘Buildings that shaped Birmingham’, an architectural overview by director Matthew Goer, was featured in the Birmingham Post. The two part series has been a study into how historic, social and political issues have impacted on the building styles and requirements of Birmingham, using particular buildings as representatives for their era. The closing section started with the 1950’s ring road development and ended with a look to the future prospects of the city, with the opening of the refurbished New Street Station on the horizon.

Matthew Goer said of the articles, _‘It’s been a great experience to look at the rich architectural heritage of Birmingham. We’re very proud to be part of the city’s future, especially when you consider some of the buildings that make up its past.’_
