A mono conversion of Coffee 'n' Cream previously in my PF.
The image is of the spiral staircase at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill, East Sussex.
The pavilion was built by Earl De La Warr when the modern was only just beginning to be the accepted architectural style of social progress. Earl De la Warr, the socialist mayor of Bexhill-on-Sea, drew up a brief for a building simple in design, light in appearance, with large window spaces, sunbathing terraces, a restaurant, a reading room, a multi-purpose entertainments hall: a modernist dream building by the seaside. De La Warr Pavilion was to be the first large scale welded steel-framed building in the UK. The competition announced by Bexhill Corporation attracted 230 entries, and was won by one of the giants of European architecture, a revolutionary and visionary, Erich Mendelsohn - famous for his Einstein Tower in Postdam and his Schoken department store in Stuttgart.
Thanks as always for your time. your comments/thoughts are very welcome - not something I do often - mono's!
