Couleurs sur la plage
AN ALGORITHM GENERATED FROM THE FOUNDING CHARTER OF THE CITY USED TO COLOUR OVER 500 BEACH CABINS
Permanent work of art
Over 500 of the 713 beach huts of this « little village by the sea » have been painted with colours. With the help of researchers from the University of Le Havre – Normandy, Dutch graphic designer Karel Martens chose 10 different colours and 6 widths of stripes which alternate following the pattern defined by an algorithm generated from the founding charter of the city, issued by King Francis I in 1517.
