Birmingham (UK) opened a spectacular new public library late last year, so back in February I opted to visit the site of the much maligned old Birmingham Central Library, an iconic Brutalist monolith that dominates Chamberlain Square. Though not classically attractive, Central Library is notable as one of relatively few examples of true Brutalist architecture in Britain, though sadly the city council have an Certificate of Immunity for the structure, preventing English Heritage from obtaining listed status for it. In the last few years it has also gained some fantastic murals, and it was these which would the focus of this visit.
