Brighton, on England’s South coast, is the perfect centre for the IHBC’s 2020 School: ‘OLD TOWNS : NEW FUTURES’, exemplifying contemporary heritage challenges and responses. It is also very accessible from across the UK and beyond, with air, rail and road links.
Brighton has evolved from a unique coincidence of historic, social, cultural and geographic opportunities. More recently it has successfully reinvented itself as an exciting urban centre, at home in the 21st century.
Yet Brighton, like all urban and civic centres, must continually develop new responses to changing circumstances, currently seen in today’s rapidly changing society and technologies.
Like many parts of the UK, the city and its environs are responding to major challenges changes and pressures, from tourism and retail to housing and transport, as well as climate change impacts.
