The Genie of Industry
commissioned by CENTRO the artwork feature sits on top of a train information point.
John designed the genie as a tribute to the industry of the Birmingham metal bashers over the centuries. The Birmingham civic coat of arms has a black smith and anvil upon it which were starting points of information for the genie.

Mild steel galvanized and painted, the railings ran over 200m designed by John McKenna and fabricated by Art for Architecture.
