- as Avery responds to Spinnaker with a new attraction for Southampton - image

  • Comment

Bryan Avery Architect has revealed this concept for a tower and viewing platform in Southampton that would compete with the Spinnaker in Portsmouth.

 

At 135 metres it would be a little shorter than its competitor along the coast, but it would also contain a museum.

 

 

This attraction would contain exhibitions relating to Southampton’s history, including its maritime and aviation past.

 

 

The form of the structure itself takes inspiration from the wing of the Supermarine Spitfire, which was manufactured in the town.

 

 

Avery’s concept was a direct response to a local campaign that had become frustrated by the apparently positive response Portsmouth was winning due to the Spinnaker.
