Brighton is one of my favourite places to visit for a day trip. Nothing can beat a bit of sea air, especially in the winter when you feel cooped up inside for too much of the time.
Embassy Court along Brighton's seafront is Art Deco at its most simplistic. This Modernist piece of architecture is grade II listed and rather stands out amongst the Regency architecture associated with the town, and has been likened to an ocean liner in appearance with its tiers of horizontal lines which are its balconies. Despite being criticised in the past as being an eyesore, a blot on the landscape, something from the third world, it still stands strong with its simple clean lines and is now a luxury block of flats.
It is round the back which I take the most delight in, with the sweeping lines of the staircases, and it is these which I have depicted in this print.
The print is supplied in a window mount to fit a standard sized ready-made frame.
