Once one of the largest car manufacturing plants in the United Kingdom, the Factory Arts Center has received a dramatic face-lift and has been rebuilt from the ground up to become Birmingham's biggest youth recreation area. Complete with dance studios, recording studios, cafes and sports facilities, this building has become a mecca for creative minds.

Designed by Steven Chilton of Marks Barfield Architects, who is most known for building the London Eye, the Factory Arts Center is built from fiber-reinforced concrete walls and features a plywood interior. Definitely not like the youth centers from my home city!
