Urban Oases: Ikon Gallery, Oozells Square, Birmingham

leave a comment »

If Brindleyplace is the crowning glory of the canalside redevelopment, the Ikon is the icing. Plain, smooth, white icing it may be, but then that’s what this gallery does best. Small but perfectly formed within its imposing neo-gothic shell, here you can soak up the minimalist modernism in a lunch hour, soothed by a sea of white.
