248. The Casino Pleasure Beach. Blackpool
Joseph Emberton designed this building in 1937 that was opened in May 1939. Although a very different building, the Casino inevitably draws comparison with the De la Warr Pavilion designed by Erich Mendelsohn. Its main staircase, however, owes something to Gropius’s model factory for the 1914 Werkbund Exhibition at Cologne.
