Uber_Spy says:

Saying it looked like it was covered in sequins would be too kind. It actually looks a whole bunch better in a photo - in real life...its just so nasty. AND right next to the most beautiful church..very odd..

wheres the door how do you get in??

23rd Mar 2006, 22:15

Uber_Spy says:

Just round to left where you can't see. Inside the bit that looks like a sea creature is a mall...a big confusing mall..(even for me who is queen of malls)

i dunno. i kind of like that structure, you know. Brum town centre was a bit dull architecturally before that came along, i think. anyway, any structure that houses a harvey nicks gets my vote ;)

WOW, how odd! Reminds me of a building in Sheffield (from when I was at uni) it looked as if it had taps on it!
