    In 2002 I left college to persue a degree in Photography. I studied for 3 years at Birmingham’s Institute of Art & Design (part of the University of Central England at the time) at the Gosta Green campus, graduating in 2005. They were some of the best years of my life (mainly because of the endless parties and drunkenness and having to do your hobby as a degree!!).

    The building itself was built in the 1960’s and was formed as part of Birmingham’s Polytechnic. It was the largest Art & Design faculty outside of London.

    In 1992 the name changed to University of Central England and then in 2007 it changed to Birmingham City University.

    BIAD has now (September 2013) moved to a brand new multi-million pound art & design campus next to Millennium Point less than a mile away. The old Gosta Green campus was bought by Aston University, which is located next door to the old campus.

    The images below show the building in various states of decommissioning. Pictures are taken between the months of June & July 2013.

    Considering the size of this building there are lots of images (just over 100), but more can be found here, http://flickr.com/gp/39746360@N06/0W7X5p/

    The Exterior…

    Interior (With some before and after shots) Not quite sure where to start, so I will break the first lot up into colours as on the Visual Communications side they divided up the floors into colours.

    18. Looking right before the end, you see the theatre design room, this room was always red hot!! (Before & after photo)
