Birmingham Architectural Association Website

 

Client

 

The Birmingham Architectural Association (BAA), founded in 1874, represents local people with an interest in architecture. It is run by a community of people from practices based in Birmingham with an aim to promote and share knowledge throughout the community.

 

Brief

 

The BAA required a new website to showcase events in Birmingham, particularly their own offering of talks, walking tours, events/socials and site visits in time for their official launch.

 

Outcome

 

FRA developed a new website acting as an events portal, allowing BAA members to remotely upload their events via Google Calendar. The website also offers a platform for hosting their own architectural competitions. The new BAA logo remained a strong visual anchor for the website, creating a visual identity of large architectural shapes and images, reflecting the BAA’s bold vision for the future. The website coincided with the official launch night for the BAA at the IKON Gallery in Birmingham which FRA attended along with 400 other guests.
