Description - Remaking Birmingham by Liam Kennedy

The city of Birmingham offers a particularly rich case-study on urban regeneration as it strives to build a new city image. Positioned between decline and regeneration, the landscape of the city and its environs collages old and new, producing dramatic contrasts - of industrial and postindustrial urbanisms of crumbling brutalism and spectacular flagship developments, of Victorian housing and diverse cultural lifestyles - that compound the aesthetic and socio-economic means of regeneration. This visually exciting book also reflects upon and extends current debates about public space, cultural zoning and the futures of cities. The volume is multi-disciplinary in content, including contributions from specialists in architecture, public and community arts, photography and urban studies - their critical perspectives linked by interest in urban visual culture. Joe Holyoak, Wendy Shillam, Glenn Howells, Wil Alsop, Sylvia King, Deborah Kermode, Nigel Prince, Tim Hall, Peter James, Nick Hedges, Roger Shannon, Maria Balshaw, Deborah Parsons and Jane Lutz.
