Madin was a significant figure of post-war Birmingham architecture; born in Moseley in 1924, Madin died on 8 January 2012. His ‘brutalist’ work came up against much resistance in the past, and still typifies Birmingham for many.
Madin’s work has been neglected, and a lot of it is disappearing in the city’s constant drive Forward (Birmingham’s motto). However, since his architectural dominance, few practices have been able to match his commercial success at home and abroad.
To celebrate his life, PROVIDE is pleased to present an exhibition of photographs by Dave Callanan, opening tomorrow at 6pm. Prints of all the images in exhibition will be available to buy in 12″ x 8″ format. There will also be a free selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and Bombay mix.

Do the very best you can at the time.
