I’m Kat, the author of Brumitecture. This website was created as my final Online Journalism MA by Practice Project. Driven by my passion for creative online content and my slightly unhealthy obsession with buildings, I wanted to share the joy I found discovering the beautiful architecture of Birmingham when I first moved to the city.
I hope that whether you’re a Brummie at heart, or a newcomer to the city, Brumitecture will help you to explore the fascinating histories behind these wonderful structures, and head out into town with our walking tours to experience our heritage first hand.
