Birmingham Town Hall occupies a central place in the history of Britain’s second city. Built in 1834 to champion and reflect Birmingham’s civic achievements, the Town Hall’s design was based on the form and style of a partially surviving Roman temple and involved architectural luminaries such as Sir John Soane. This is the first book to provide an accessible account of the building’s construction and history. It will be welcomed by architects, architectural historians, all those interested in local history and building conservation, and those for whom the Town Hall is a much-loved landmark in Birmingham.
