Bathing BeautiesTM: Re-imagining the Beach Hut for the 21st Century - Exhibition

About

For many families on the east coast, beach huts are a way of life. This exhibition is an innovative and engaging look at the architecture of beach hut design. It evolved from the Bathing BeautiesTM project (www.bathingbeauties.org.uk) which inspired 240 architects, artists and designers from 15 countries to compete for commissions to build their 21st century designs on the Lincolnshire coast. The exhibition is complemented by a display of contemporary photographs depicting life in Scarborough's beach huts (August 2009). We will also be showing our collection of historic swimwear and asking local design students to invent the bathing costume of the future.
