National Westminster House, 103 Colmore Row, Birmingham, 2014 • Fine brutalist pile with a sculpted metal portal based on the Natwest logo. Designed by John Madin, it opened in 1975 as a National Westminster banking hall, and had been vacant since 2003. Despite attempts to save it, it has recently been torn down – catch it just pre-demolition here. The beautiful aluminium doors, by noted stained glass artist Henry Haig, are apparently going to be incorporated into the new building.
