Birmingham Central Library
The Library is next to and physically connected with Birmingham Repertory Theatre (The REP). Other important cultural venues including the ICC, Symphony Hall, Arena Birmingham (previously known as the NIA), Town Hall and Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery are located very close by. The external architecture is quite unique and the internal structure is highly photogenic. It is a public space and a recognised tourist attraction with no entry restrictions to photographers. There is a garden overlooking Centenary Square on the 3rd floor level of the building giving interesting views and reflections in the nearby buildings.
