Hidden Spaces Exhibition
When: Saturday 21st June until Sunday 29th June, 10:00-15:00
Where: Curzon Street Station, New Canal Street, Digbeth, B5 5LG
Associated Architects are opening the doors of Digbeth’s Grade I listed Curzon Street Station this week, to host a photography exhibition of Birmingham’s Hidden Spaces.
The show will include pictures of places usually hidden from public view, such as underground Cold-War era tunnels and the Chamberlain Clock Tower at the Council House. In addition to the exhibition, a short film has been commissioned to show a different perspective of the spaces.
The free exhibition will be open 10:00-15:00 daily from Saturday 21st June until Sunday 29th June 2014 as part of Love Architecture Week, which includes other events such as a Digbeth pub trail with Joe Holyoak; taking place on Sunday 29th June, Joe will lead a free tour around Digbeth’s most significant pubs, starting at The Woodman at 14:30.
Curzon Street Station is the oldest railway terminus in the world; built in the early 1830s, it is promised a new lease of life when it becomes part of the proposed HS2 station. Students from Birmingham City University School of Architecture’s Co.LAB initiative have helped transform the space for the exhibition.
