[Reposted from Nov. 2013] "Goodbye to the splendid 1930s [architecture] of Poirot"

"I say! -
link to the National Programme of the BBC,
don't you know?"

"David Suchet has had his last outing as Poirot. The TV adaptation was a glorious love letter to the design and architecture of the 1930s.

"... A pantheon of modernist and Art Deco British buildings acted as backdrop to a series of murders of the well-to-do.

"... [For instance,] the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea (below) is a British Modern Movement building. It opened in 1935 but after the end of WW2, its use declined and it fell into disrepair. In 1989, after an extensive campaign it achieved Grade I listed status. It was revived and reopened in 2006.
