Oozells Street Board School

Oozells Street Board School

Oozells Street Board School was a Victorian board school in Oozells Street, off Broad Street in Birmingham, England.

Designed in 1877 by local architects Martin & Chamberlain, responsible for over forty of the Birmingham board schools, it opened on 28 January 1878 to serve 807 primary children.

In 1976 the tower was demolished on safety grounds. Since 1993 it has become surrounded by the new buildings of Brindleyplace which replaced an earlier industrial area of factories and workshops. It was rebuilt around 1997 with a steel girder frame. Redevelopment was by Carillion at a cost of ?4,700,000.

The building became a college and then a furniture store for Birmingham City Council before being condemned for demolition. It had a last-minute reprieve as the contract for demolition was being agreed and reopened in 1998 as the Ikon Gallery.
The Ikon Gallery is an English gallery of contemporary art, located in Brindley place, Birmingham. It is housed in the Grade II listed, neo-Gothic former Oozells Street Board School, designed by John Henry Chamberlain in 1877. The gallery's current director is Jonathan Watkins.

Ikon was set up to encourage the public to engage in contemporary art. As a result of this, the gallery runs an off-site 'Education and Interpretation' scheme that educates audiences, promotes artists and their art. The gallery is open every day of the week except Mondays, though it opens on bank holiday Mondays.

Featured artworks include all forms of media including sound, sculpture and photography as well as paintings. Exhibitions rotate throughout the year so that as many pieces can be displayed as possible. Ikon is a registered charity which is partly funded by Birmingham City Council and Arts Council of England.

Scaffolded East Facade

Scaffolded East Facade

East facade under restoration; under all this scaffolding (erected in 2005 and due to stay for at least 10 years) is the famous east window, the largest medieval window ever built. It's precious and virtually complete original stained glass is currently stored awaiting conservation.

York Minster is England's largest medieval cathedral and almost impossible to do justice to. It has an awesome presence that cannot fail to impress.

Uniquely the cathedral was spared the ravages of the Civil War that decimated the mediecal art of most English cathedrals and churches, and thus posseses the largest collection of medieval glass in Britain throughout most of it's vast windows.

Sadly this fortune was not matched by the Minster's vulnerability to fire which has ravaged the building in 3 major outbreaks, the worst in 1829 when a madman set fire to the precious medieval furniture of the choir, destroying both it, the organ and the high vaulted ceiling of the eastern half of the church. Only 11 years after this tragedy a careless workman accidentally set fire to the nave roof, which also lost it's vault. Both roofs were rebuilt in replica, but a further fire caused by lightning strike in 1984 destroyed the south transept roof (rebuilt 4 years later).

Most medieval cathedrals were provided with stone vaulted ceilings precisly to avoid the problems suffered here, but York's builders found that building on such an unprecedentedly large scale brought limitations, thus all the Minster's high ceilings had to be built of wood in imitation of stone. An Achilles' Heel, but a beautiful one!
