Hagley Road Office Blocks

Beauty in brutal architecture of Hagley Road.

Closer to Birmingham city center, the Hagley Road’s hotel-based architectural landscape gives way to some more serious buildings – dirty great concrete office blocks of up to 15 storeys high. That may not sound like much to our American friends, but you know, we do what we can.

By and large these office blocks are short on charm (and short on tenants mostly) but they have a certain brutal geometric quality which combined with the exaggerated colours of cross processing can lead to some striking imagery. A favorite of mine is ‘Tricorn House’ which doesn’t look like much from a distance, but get up close and its curved shape takes on a futuristic look (which is probably what the architect originally intended).

Why not ‘look up’ around your town and see what your skyline has to offer?
