Archienthusiasm Days Out

A few recommendations for summery C20 days out…

1. Sound Mirrors, Dungeness (next and final open day for the year Saturday 11th August) More info here: http://www.rmcp.co.uk/NoticeBoard.php

Ruth and I went to look at these in July and were suitably impressed. So much so we want to go back to Dungeness…maybe a tour of the power station next time.

2. De la Warr Pavilion, Bexhill on Sea

A seaside modernist marvel! Excellent opportunities for great coffee on the sun terrace too.

3. Silver End, Essex

The Home of Crittall Windows and their Art Deco worker housing. Highly recommended to get a glimpse of how the owners are living in/with their architectural heritage houses. There were a lot of flat roof repairs going on when I visited, though many of the houses are clearly very well loved. Even if that does mean UPVC.

4. Plotlands Museum, Laindon, Essex

There was an annual reunion of ex-plotlanders going on when I visited the other week, they invited us in for a look around even though the museum was closed. Lovely. I must dig out Colin Ward’s Arcadia for All again…
