Birmingham Central Library
Birmingham
Birmingham
Central Library was the main public library in Birmingham, England, from 1974 until 2013. For a time the largest non-national library in Europe,[1] it closed on 29 June 2013 and was replaced with the Library of Birmingham. The building was demolished in 2016, after 41 years, as part of the redevelopment of Paradise Circus by Argent Group.[2] Designed by architect John Madin
John Madin
in the brutalist style, the library was part of an ambitious development project by Birmingham City Council to create a civic centre on its new Inner Ring Road system; however, for economic reasons significant parts of the masterplan were not completed and quality was reduced on materials as an economic measure. Two previous libraries occupied the adjacent site before Madin’s library opened in 1974. The previous library, designed by John Henry Chamberlain, opened in 1883, and featured a tall clerestoried reading room
