Thank you BPL

Making it more accessible

Today the Birmingham Public Library has announced an expansion of its newly named Birmingham Architecture and Design Collection, part of the library’s Department of Archives and Manuscripts. This new effort will involve enhanced collection, promotion, preservation, and access to materials related to local design (above, the original Alabama Power Company building, 1925, by Warren Knight and Davis).

A collaboration between the library and local members and supporters of the design community, this is a welcome new resource for the City, and one more tool to help improve demand for good design. Thank you to everyone who’s put this project together!
