Item description for Beachlife: Architecture and Interior Design on the Seaside by Clare Lowther & Sarah Schultz...
Putting an ordinary towel down on the sand may well suffice in order to enjoy a sunny day at the beach. But more and more often designers, architects and artists are crafting imaginative solutions that capture or enhance the unique atmosphere that is created where water meets land. Beachlife presents a selection of the best concepts in architecture, interiors and product design that are inspired both directly and indirectly by the beach. The book features structures such as beach clubs, beach bars, hotels, restaurants, vacation homes and pavilions that can be found on ocean coasts and riverbanks. But, more than that, Beachlife also includes furniture and products made for the seaside as well as original projects by creatives from around the world, who have discovered the beach as a location for experimental art, temporary installations and events. The numerous examples in Beachlife deliver new and unusual insights into how the beach can be presented and utilised creatively not only as a place for relaxation and inspiration, but also as an attitude and way of life.
