About

This blog is an attempt to capture, partly for my own sake but also for anybody who might be interested, the extraordinary variety of architecture that Brighton possesses. I also want to demonstrate its importance as a physical record inscribed emphatically onto the physical landscape by two centuries of culture, in which the intricacies, follies and anxieties of each successive era might, whether in an elaborate oriel window or a row of Doric columns, might be teased out and examined. This isn’t intended as a slavish survey of Brighton’s architectural canon, but rather an examination of every aspect of its built environment, from the infamous pier to a single terraced house.

I’ve tried to make sure that there’s no presumption of pre-existing architectural knowledge as I want this blog to be accessible to anyone who finds it interesting, but please let me know if there’s anything that you’d like me to expand on or explain in greater detail!
