Birmingham kicked off 2021 with the city council outlining its ambitious vision for the future. The Our Future City Plan Our aims to deliver on the green economy and see the city bounce back with a focus on connectivity and equality.
With the Commonwealth Games just around the corner and HS2 bringing a wealth of opportunities, Birmingham has all the right ingredients for how a city can be redesigned with people and pride at its centre.
To an uneducated outsider, however, Birmingham is brutalist, fenced in by its choking ring road.
But could they be wrong? As cranes pepper the skyline and decades of concrete architecture are being replaced, can Birmingham shake off its brutalist image? Can the heart of the golden triangle shine even brighter or does the boom in last-mile logistics pose a threat?
Join EG as we venture to the city find out what is in store for the future of Birmingham.
