Sustainable development

Colors on the beach is a work by the Dutch graphic designer Karel Martens in collaboration with Le Havre inhabitants and organizations. Indeed, hundreds of beach cabines owners have accepted to contribute to the project. Educational structures are also involved. Le Havre University created the algorythm that determines the lenghts and colors of the stripes, while CFA Baie de Seine and Schuman-Perret highschool painted many cabines. Last but not least, AHAPS inclusion sheme took part with a dozen of trainees in the painting of the cabines, which are the unexpected medium for this project in between science and art.
