Birmingham: The city of a 1000 trades is evolving. Once
the beating heart of the industrial revolution, the city now stands upon the
cusp of a new revolution. Major financial institutions are relocating to the
city, the digital media sector looks to establish a home and like never before,
there is huge aspiration to live, work and play in the workshop of the world.
The result of this is a demand for a Brum architecture that not only fiercely
celebrates our industrial heritage, but also looks to follow form as inventors
and innovators.

As architects in the Jewellery Quarter and housed in a
former electroplating works, Glancy Nicholls Architects are hosting an evening
of discussion on the design of new architecture within historically significant
contexts, and how new life can be brought into old structures and existing
buildings for repurposing and regeneration.

Trading Places will feature talks from some very special
guest speakers from Birmingham City Council as well as delicious street food
served by Big Daddies Diner and The Hungry Toad, with drinks also provided by
the Two Towers Brewery.
