Standing Tall and Brightly Coloured

Recently a team of top international graffiti artists added to the allure of the i360 build, covering 100 meters of hoardings with eye catching images.

The local artists that made this happen were Aroe, Gary, Rebus, Jiroe, Vodka, Morf, Warg, Ster and Past, as well as Yes B from Essex, Rench from Reading, Nottingham’s Alert and Europeans Twesh, from Italy and Relay, from Germany, who both now live in the UK.

Said chief executive at the i360, Eleanor Harris, “One of the things I love about this city is the creative buzz. When Aroe approached us to paint our hoardings and brighten up some otherwise grey boards, this seemed the perfect way to tap into this creativity before we even open.

“I think the artwork they have produced is fantastic – really vibrant and interesting – and it is well worth coming to the i360 site on Brighton beach to take a look where you can also see the tower construction which is progressing rapidly and will be completed within weeks.”

The Brighton i360 tower is now officially the tallest building in Sussex, having reached 120 metres high, despite the fact the construction is not yet complete. It is now already taller than Shoreham Power Station, which previously was the tallest structure, and Sussex Heights in Brighton & Hove, which was the tallest building, and other famous landmarks such as Chichester Cathedral and the Gatwick Air Traffic Control tower.

The tower is an incredibly elegant and beautiful piece of architecture, soaring up into the sky and it will be fantastic to see the tower revealed in all its glory when the square jacking tower, used to build the tower, is removed next month.

Segments of the glass pod, which has been designed and built by leading cable car designers POMA, will arrive in Brighton in the autumn and then work will begin on the beach buildings, to create a stunning new events and visitor centre and restaurant.

The attraction remains on track to open next summer.
