Grand and impressive, the Town Hall is a landmark building in the heart of the city of Birmingham and has played a major role in the city's musical, political, architectural and social history. Architectural historian Anthony Peers, who played a key part in the recent conservation of the Town Hall, discusses the construction of the building and the several subsequent schemes of alteration which were required over the following decades as the building's use evolved. He combines new site-based fabric recording and analysis with existing documentary sources to add greatly to our understanding of the building's construction.
Birmingham Town Hall will be welcomed by architects, architectural historians, all those interested in local history and building conservation, and those for whom the Town Hall is a much-loved landmark in Birmingham. It provides fascinating insight into the history of the city and the architecture of one of its key landmarks.
