This Brutal City – New Street Signal Box

Another in the series I’m calling ‘This Brutal City’ – Probably one of the only Brutalist buildings in Birmingham that is currently safe from destruction.  The New Street signal Box by Bicknell & Hamilton.  Grade II listed and couldn’t be more at odds with the new mirror clad Grand Central Terminal.

This Brutal City – 103 Colmore Row – John Madin

The hoardings are going up and the scaffolding is being erected on 103 Colmore Row… Another one of John Madin’s Brutalist structures is being dismantled. I’m going to miss it.  I must have walked past this concrete monolith hundreds of times over the last decade, and it makes me slightly sad that it’s end is nigh.
