De La Warr Pavilion

De La Warr PavilionI’ve posted photos of the De La Warr Pavilion twice before, but never during sunny weather. The sun makes the white paint work gleam and the striking Art Deco design really stands out.

The pavilion was designed by Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff. Their designs beat over 230 others submitted to the competition set by Herbrand Sackville. It is now a grade 1 listed building.

After a £9 million refit in 2005 it has since been hosting contemporary art and music exhibitions. There is no permanent work displayed at the De La Warr Pavilion so regular visitors can enjoy a different experience every time they visit.

This photograph is a composite of 11 different shots. It is best viewed larger on my Panoramio page, which you can do by clicking on the image. There are 25 seagulls to be found in the picture. Can you spot them all?
