Remaking Birmingham

English | 5 Aug. 2004 | ISBN: 041528838X, 0415288398 | 174 Pages | PDF | 14 MB

The city of Birmingham offers a particularly rich case study on urban regeneration as it strives to

build a new city image. Positioned between decline and regeneration, the landscape of the city and its environs collages old and new, producing dramatic contrasts – of industrial and post-industrial urbanisms of crumbling brutalism and spectacular flagship developments, of Victorian housing and diverse cultural lifestyles – that compound the aesthetic and socio-economic means of regeneration.
