Timelapse film of the building of John Madin's Birmingham Central Library
Birmingham timelapse from 7inch cinema on Vimeo.
Photographer Derek Fairbrother took this incredible series of photos from the same spot in Birmingham between the mid-sixties and 1973. It shows the demolition of Mason Science College [on the left] among others, to be replaced by John Madin's vastly scaled-down and de-speced plans for the Central Library. It illustrates quite vividly how much the city changed in that time, from Victorian grandeur to modernist spectacular.
