Birmingham Central Library could be considered the Marmite of libraries: you either love it, or you hate it.
Well, here is a project for those who wish to profess their love for that Brutalist structure: Project Brutal. (via Created in Birmingham)
“Project Brutal: Initial Meeting: 20th April 6:30-7:30pm. CiB Shop.
Project Brutal is a plan to bring together people and networks interested in creatively celebrating and capturing Birmingham’s Brutal library before it’s too late. We’re looking to formulate a series of events and projects under the Brutal banner over an extended period of time.
So if you’re passionate about the library’s architecture, space and history and are keen to find out more and get involved in making this a reality then come and join us on April 20th.”
Register for the event at eventbrite, and find out more about the project on their website.
