The Bathing Beauties beach huts were created to help with the regeneration of a number of locations on the Lincolnshire coast following the appointment of artist Michael Trainor in 2005.
The project’s aim was to create series of dramatic and beautiful seaside structures on a superb but partly forgotten 10 mile stretch of Lincolnshire coastline from Mablethorpe to Chapel St. Leonards. The coastline features award-winning beaches, uninterrupted views of sand, sea, sky and over 500 beach huts.
A design competition was launched to ‘Re-imagine the Beach Hut for the 21st Century’ and it elicited one of the most exciting responses to any architectural competition this century. Over 240 designs, in the form of models, were received from over 15 countries including the UK, USA, Germany, Italy, France, Portugal, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Canada, Singapore, India, China, Russia, Japan and Israel.
