Tuesday 7th September walking along the Piazza by the British Airways i360 and we saw a number of metal pillars rising from the ground.

The Piazza is an area along the beachfront where the entrance of the West Pier once stood. It is dedicated to the heritage of the Pier.

The twenty-four cast-iron columns were originally part of the substructure of the West Pier they had previously been sited on the beach. They were survivors of the two fires which destroyed the Pier, the remains of which are sadly rotting away.

The layout of the pillars was inspired by the Fibonacci Spiral, named after the Italian mathematician, also known as the Golden Spiral. They are illuminated at night.

Visited on Thursday 19th October. This is something new we discovered since our last visit to Brighton, it is situated on the foreshore close to West Pier and British Airways i360 observation tower. It is beautifully done with twenty four columns from the abandoned West Pier. At night it is lit up and looks great. You also get to see it when you are in the observation tower high above it.

I visited the pillars both at night, illuminated next to the British Airways i360, and day to get different perspectives. The columns celebrate the West Pier of 1886 and actually supported the main promenade of the pier at the time. They are found in this particular piazza along Brighton Beach where the structure used to be after surviving fires in the early twenty-first century.

The Golden Spiral is located close to the former West Pier. It was created using pillars from the former pier and they were arranged into a grand spiral. In addition they have lights at the bottom so they are lit up at night. Probably quite important so people don't crash into them but also it makes them look good.

I got some great pix of this monument and I love that a green city like Brighton is reusing for metal.

First time we had been to Brighton and we had forgotten there use to be another pier there were these pillars are. Interesting to see and nice that they have kept some of the memories of the old pier alive today.

Novel and interesting memorial to the old West pier essentially made from the pillars that used to hold up the pier. By night the structures are beautifully lit up just a shame they didn't consider a solar power option in our green city of Brighton.

Just as we found the remains of the West Pier fascinating, we found this sculpture (?) constructed from some of the salvaged metal pillars of the old pier a fitting tribute. It's nice to think that when the old pier has completely succumbed, this will be a permanent reminder. What they could add is a little exhibition about how the West Pier fell into ruin before the fires early this century.

A part of the now derelict West Pier, these are a rather unique memorial. Very pretty when all lit up late at night and visible from the i360 just next door.
Also when you look out to the pier gives you a very strange sense of imagining how that area used to look.

Felt like a very Brighton attraction. These columns represent a story about the old West Pier. Obviously. It's easy to find by the i360.

Came across the Golden Spiral during a walk on a balmy night on Brighton Beach. With the sunset in the background & the Golden Spiral all lit up they were quite spectacular. Great photo opportunity.
