My blog has moved and changed name to DESIGN SODA, I’d love it if you followed along with my new content there.
Field trip to Modernism by sea:
Bexhill is a lovely seaside town. It has all the usual Georgian & Victorian decay common to Sussex seaside towns complete with net-curtain-twitching-B&B’s, uniform beach huts and murky brown healing waters, but it also has something unexpected – Modernism. Bexhill is home to the De La Warr Pavilion which is the second ever modernist structure built in the UK. And just like famous childhood resident Eddie Izzard the pavilion is surprising, beautiful and unexpected, I give you my second photo diary of English Seaside towns:

Beach Huts on the seafront Fabulously designed promenade. Beach huts from behind, moody English weather system optional. Interior of The De La Warr Staircase detail. The back of the pavilion. Seafront
