Join us in celebrating architecture this summer: Take your children to build a LEGO city from scratch at Millennium Point, discover Birmingham in Retrospective, learn about architectural photography, have your kids learn to think like an architect, enjoy architecture and art on a visit to Dudley Zoo, or join us for an architectural pub trail through Digbeth.
Birmingham Architectural Association (BAA) is pleased to announce the launch of Love Architecture: Birmingham, a Birmingham architecture festival in tandem with the Royal Institute of British Architect’s (RIBA) national Love Architecture Festival 2013. Together with a range of Birmingham architectural practices and partner organisations, BAA and RIBA are proud to present an exciting programme of events to take place across the city between 21-30 June 2013.
