Built in 1999 as part of the redevelopment of the famous Bullring indoor shopping centre in Birmingham, the dramatic new landmark building of the Selfridges department opened for business in 2003..
Designed by the Future Systems architectural practice, the building is covered in 15,000 shiny aluminium discs and cost a cool £60 million to build.
The building has proved a hit with both the public and design bods, earning it the RIBA Award for Architecture 2004 and Destination of the Year Retail Week Awards 2004.
