Explore Erich Mendelsohn’s design legacy with a tour of the De La Warr Pavilion.
A refugee from Hitler’s Germany, Erich Mendelsohn had already established an international reputation when, together with Russian-born Serge Chermayeff,.he won the commission led by the 9th Earl De La Warr to design a new Pavilion for Bexhill. The result, a ‘people’s palace for art and culture’, was and continues to be an expression of a specifically social and moral agenda.
