Birmingham Buildings and Structures

RE: Lost Cinemas of Brum

Not having been home for some years I haven't seen the new buildings but the architect probably designed the Gherkin in London, another (to me) monstrocity. Glass and concrete, concrete and glass mixed with no imagination or consideration for the surrounding buidlings. And how will they wear and what will they look like in 50 years time (if they 're still standing). I suppose it's all about money. Most things generally are. Look at the unseemly haste to go from film to digital so that we could all wear 3D glasses and live the action. But, unfortunately, the pictures are dim because the technology doesn't need projectionists anymore. The studios are coining it in because they don't need to make or transport or store costly heavy prints. But are the punters happy? According to todays reports they are shunning 3D. It's so easy to destroy something and put nothing better (or even as good) in it's place. Look at the old buildings in New Street and Colmore Row. Pleasant to the eye with their embellishments and creative patterns. Sadly, the wreckers of good taste don't all live in Birmingham. See what the city fathers have done to sections of Southend High Street. They neither care nor understand anything but cash. Progress marches on!!!
