Though I preferred the Atkins proposal at the time, there was something I liked about the design for the square that was chosen. I'm glad it was, although it could have been improved down by the Hall of Memory. It looks world class!

BIRMINGHAM UNIVERSITY

An illustration has been released of the 'green heart' planned for the main campus at Birmingham University:-

Quote:
Green Heart at the University of Birmingham

Associated Architects is pleased to release the proposals for the Green Heart project at the University of Birmingham. The appointment involves the creation and delivery of 5.5 hectares of open space at the centre of the campus created from the demolition of the old campus library, replaced to the west of the site by the new £42m library designed by Associated Architects.

The proposal will place public realm at the centre stage with all buildings accessed from it, reopening a 300m long central spine first conceived in the late 1920’s. Associated Architects will design the pavilions and update walkways to the east as well as overseeing the project delivery as lead consultant. Churchman Landscape Architects are working as part of a full multi-disciplinary team with ARUP & Couch Perry Wilkes to design the public space with their proposals focusing on the value of external space as common ground fully accessible by the academic community and re-establishing the University’s original vision through its grand axis.

Construction is due to commence following the demolition of old library in September 2016.

MIPIM UK CITY OF THE YEAR 2015

Quote:
City of the Year

Birmingham

The MIPIM UK / Estates Gazette City of the Year has had a stellar 12 months.

Earlier this year the influential ULI/PwC Emerging Trends in Real Estate report revealed the winner had moved up 14 places to 6th in the annual ranking of European cities that are attracting investor interest.

Throw in the promise of significant improvements to transport infrastructure, airport expansion as well as regeneration of its main station and other parts of the city centre and there is much to celebrate.

It has not been without its challenges of course but this city has attracted some of the very highest profile occupiers from London and has reinvented itself as a live, work and play destination for the next generation.

BIRMINGHAM TRAMWAY EXTENSION

The extension of the Midland Metro through Birmingham city centre should be completed in the next couple of months. Having laid the track through the city centre, work is now focused on other aspects such as creating the stops for the Metro:-
