Seaside Architecture Project

In contrast to the Independent's Margate love article (like I said, don't get me wrong. I love Margate). Mary O'Hara wrote a more down to earth piece in the Guardian. The piece also centers on the soon to be released English Heritage project on seaside architecture. The author, Allan Brodie - a senior investigator for English Heritage has spent the last five years studying the state of British seaside resorts. Brodie states that:

"Margate is a good example of how small-scale, targeted, locally-coordinated projects can help inspire a turnaround."
I had heard that a presentation of the project would be held at the Theatre Royal. Nothing confirmed yet.
