Designed by Future Systems, an architectural and design practice producing highly original work, the Selfridges Building is a landmark building on the edge of the Bullring Shopping Centre in Birmingham housing the Selfridges & Co Department Store. Costing £60 million it consists of a steel framework with a sprayed concrete facade. Completed in 2003, the building has since become an architectural icon and is seen as having majorly contributed to the regeneration of Birmingham's City Centre.
