    Ideally I would like to see something like this at ground floor level in a revamped arts-focused (former) Central Library building – using the striking original 1974 Madin building in an imaginative way in a similar way to how the Rotunda and Tate Modern have successfully been remodeled. Sadly, us Brummies seem determined to repeat the mistakes of the 60s/70s and sweep away everything in the name of progress without stopping to consider which buildings are bold, unusual and might be worthy of saving. (I do agree however that Fletchers Walk and the Copthorne should go as soon as possible).rnResigned to this poverty of ambition as I now am, I suppose the cold storage building on Digbeth next to Hennessey’s which appears to be unused at present is an ideal building to use, bridging the gap between the markets, Bullring and Digbeth (i.e. the Custard Factory). If not there then perhaps a new build on the site of one of the hideous empty car showrooms nearby.rnOf course, I realise that what will actually be delivered will be a stall market on New Street or on Victoria Square selling dull craft-y type tat because the people who make decisions on our behalf have no ambition for Birmingham beyond making it a dull carbon copy of every other large commercial centre. Nevermind eh.
