I have been busy editing photographs of my Miami research for a book I am working on to be launched this October. Pictured is the glorious plaster relief entrance detailing on the Congress Hotel on Ocean Drive, designed by Henry Hohauser in 1936. Nearly all of the 1930s buildings in the area have plaster relief details and this is one of the more elaborate, painted in several colours.

At the moment, I am writing a few evaluations for funding which have enabled me to underake some great projects this year, including travelling to Miami to start my research project Miami Moderne. It's a useful way to look back on what I managed to do and things I could have done differently. It's not bad looking through these photographs either of buildings on Miami South Beach. Oh how the weather differs to that here today in Manchester! πŸŒžβ„πŸŒžβ„

"The sea air and bathing together were nearly infallible … Nobody could catch a cold by the sea, nobody wanted appetite, nobody wanted spirits, nobody wanted strength. They were healing, relaxing, fortifying and bracing, seemingly just as was wanted, sometimes one, sometimes the other. If the sea breeze failed, the sea bath was the certain corrective; and where bathing disagreed, the sea breeze alone was evidently designed by nature for the cure." Jane Austen, Sandition, 1817 (her last unfinished novel). ****
If you missed This Building for Hope exhibition at The Midland, you can read about my work and research for the show in a short essay I wrote now available on my website (link in bio) - 'Seaside Resilience/Revival'. The essay is also included in the Transatlantic Seaside Moderne Book launched at the symposium held to coincide with this show (only a few copies left, but available on my online shop).

This was my favourite residential property, four streets back from the beach in Miami South Beach. The pink coral rock is stained, which I saw a few examples of, mainly on hotels. The 'eyebrows' painted green, are designed to shade the small windows, to keep out the heat and sun. A feature we could do with today, its schorchio! Yesterday was hotter than Miami, hard to believe! πŸŒ•πŸ”₯ -

Thanks to the Vintage Explorer for my copy of their Oct/Nov 2017 issue which features my work and recent exhibition at The Midland in the exhibitions section, alongside the Plywood exhibition @vamuseum and The History of Design @adam.brussels Available from selected shops and their website www.vintageexplorer.co.uk, it's an interesting and eclectic magazine with this edition with features as broad ranging as the history of plastic jewellery (@gildedsplinter ) and a feature on a former council house transformed by its owner into a series of rooms that so clearly create a different global location and date in history, such as a Norwegian bathroom located in a Lightkeeper's House from 1986.

I had a quick visit to Eastbourne which has a lovely, jolly promenade. I was really taken with their elaborate pier painted in white and blue with several tiers. Their promenade has fantastic planting of tropical palm trees and exotic looking grasses and flowers, as well as an extravagant semi circular bandstand with its back to the sea.

I have been busy editing photographs of my Miami research for a book I am working on to be launched this October. Pictured is the glorious plaster relief entrance detailing on the Congress Hotel on Ocean Drive, designed by Henry Hohauser in 1936. Nearly all of the 1930s buildings in the area have plaster relief details and this is one of the more elaborate, painted in several colours.

When I was in Miami I got into drawing on paper outside with watercolour, something I haven't ever really done before, but I needed a quick way to draw, and I really like the immediacy of it. Pictured is a drawing of one of the central facade motifs of one of the many 1930s hotels on Miami South Beach.

Thanks to @british_design at the British Council for interviewing me about my recent research trip to Miami South Beach.

'The Sea Breeze was The Cure', 2016. Drawing and painting digitally printed on wallpaper, 3.2m X 7m in current show 'An Architecture of Joy' @grundyartgallery Blackpool. The work was made in response to the Rothesay Pavilion on the Isle of Bute, built in 1938 @rothesaypavilion is currently closed and being redeveloped into a community and arts centre and will reopen in 2018. The title of the work comes from a paragraph in Jane Austen's unfinished novel Sandition, where she outlines the social belief at the time that spending time at the seaside can cure any ailment.

Thanks so much to everyone who came to the opening of 'An Architecture of Joy' @grundyartgallery yesterday. It was great to see and chat to so many people who have helped me with my research from across the North West, supportive friends and meeting new faces. We are hosting an 'In Conversation' event on the 3rd August discussing ideas around the work, and I will be releasing information about that shortly.

The weather vane at the top of the Hawes Side Library in Blackpool, an early modernist 1930s design. It's currently closed with no future plans as I understand.

Today I have been thinking about The Midland Hotel, Morecambe, while drawing for a three dimensional work I am making in response to one of its interior spaces. This is one of the series of original photographs taken by the Press Association when it was built.

Today I am having a re reading and writing day. Looking at this well worn copy of 'Modernism on Sea'.
