FUSE is a project from the University of Brighton’s Interior Architecture students, exploring the possibilities of re-purposing the existing fabric of urban spaces and landscapes.
The London Road viaduct runs through the main axis of the city, dominating the skyline of Brighton. Built in the 1840s for the Brighton-Lewes and Hastings Railway Company by the locomotive engineer and railway architect John Urpeth Rastrick, the sharply curving structure has
27 arches and around 10 million bricks. It is listed at Grade II* for its historical and architectural significance and still carries the East Coastway Line between the main station of Brighton and London Road.
The intention of FUSE was to provide a series of spaces for musical jams, formation or improvised dances, collaborations, recordings or gigs, enabling collaboration between musicians, performers, dancers and choreographers. Echoing the New York ‘high line’, this project sought to create a cultural promenade, fusing the multi-layered functions and history by making venues of collaborative power, connection and intersection.
