Commissioned by the 9th Earl De La Warr in 1935 and designed by architects Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff, the De La Warr Pavilion was the UK‘s first public building built in the Modernist style.
Pioneering in structure as it was in spirit, the purpose of this steel and concrete Pavilion was to provide accessible culture and leisure for the people of Bexhill and beyond and so regenerate the economy of the town and the surrounding area.
I use to do a lot of Historical work with the HLF but people change and things move on but I was pleasantly supervised when I got a call to shoot a church for them, great little 1/2 day shooting there, the warren was a fine man with good tea making appeal and the Rev was just like the guy out of the TV series, really nice and approachable.
