The Public

These new images show Will Alsop's £40 million art space The Public, in West Bromwich, which is due to open early next year. Clad in aluminium and studded with jelly-bean shaped windows, the arts centre will provide the focus for a £450 million regeneration of the town. The project will focus on creative business support, community investment and creative learning. It is funded by a partnership between the Government Office for the West Midlands through the European Regional Development Fund, Sandwell council, the Arts Council England through the National Lottery, the New Deal for Communities Fund and Advantage West Midlands.
