The ramble will start at Moulescomb Station and end at the Earthship. About Modern Brighton and Hove Map
The Modern Brighton and Hove map is a guide to examples of architecture in Brighton and Hove and its close surrounds built in the last 100 years, including commercial and domestic Brutalist, Modernist, Art Deco and contemporary architecture.

As Brighton and Hove looks back at times of rapid development, sees around it in the present pockets of substantial regeneration, and faces issues of housing and growth, the Modern Brighton map will act as an asset for the current city to act both as a record of the city’s modern era architecture, as well as a prompt to debate and legacy for the future city.

The two-sided map illustrates c50 examples of modern architecture across the city, those that are celebrated and listed for their architectural significance, those go unrecognised, and those that are signalling new ways of living, from Embassy Court and Saltdean Lido to Brutalist Hove Town Hall and Brighton Centre and Odeon, and contemporary builds such as the Brighton Greenway housing, the Waste House and eco-homes.

The map is designed to be used as a walking exploration of the city and its heritage built environment through its contemporary architecture, and teaching guide. Each featured building will be located on the city map and include an image and architectural information on the reverse, along with an introduction to modern architecture.
