Mablethorpe leads, the world follows

Here's the thing that will do for Mablethorpe what the Guggenheim did for Bilbao. It's an entry in East Lindsey Council's competition to find the design that will take the beach-hut into the 21st century. Over 500 artists and architects joined the competition to design it, from over 20 countries including Malaysia, Australia, China, Holland, Japan, Lebanon, Singapore, USA, Israel and the UK.

This was among the best they could come up with.

That's all I can think of to say, really, without sounding (perish the thought) negative.

Haha, SM, it does. Knitted from yak hair by Outer Mongolians. It wouldn't suit you.

Hi Tina, looked at your post re SoS.. can't imagine it's changed much. have you got Google Earth on your PC? Worth downloading it to take a look at it nowadays if you haven't.

But who knitted it? It looks, actually, like soemthing that the bedridden might find handy.
