Will Scott: Seaside Shelters

Introduction by Edwin Heathcote.

This photograph of a shelter in Hastings, East Sussex, is reproduced from 'Will Scott: Seaside Shelters.'

A testament to the heyday of British summer holidays in the late 19th and early 20th centuries (and the country's notoriously fickle weather), seaside shelters provided a spot for British beachgoers to get out of the sun or the rain. Seaside towns, competing to attract visitors, installed these colorful structures on their beaches in a dizzying array of architectural styles, from Victorian to art deco to Bauhaus-inspired. The shelters started to fall into disrepair as low-cost air travel lured British holidaymakers away from the seaside; most of the shelters now stand deserted.

In Seaside Shelters, the London-based architectural photographer Will Scott celebrates the wide variety of shelters dotting the British coastline, documenting this disappearing vernacular architecture at iconic resorts and lesser-known coastal gems alike, including Blackpool, Great Yarmouth, the Isle of Wight, Clacton-on-Sea, Portsmouth, Aberystwyth, Swanage and Cromer.

Charmingly stoic and exasperatingly austere: Seaside Shelters

Charmingly stoic and exasperatingly austere: Seaside Shelters

It may be the last day of summer, but we're not giving up without a nod to the newest book from Heni Publishing. Collecting British architectural photographer Will Scott's pictures of seaside shelters like this one at Skegness, Lincolnshire, this volume couldn't be more beautifully produced, down to the tipped-on image attached to the perfect sea-foam green cover. Though the book released just this week, it has already received excellent reviews in Elle Decor, Floornature, Creative Boom and Wallpaper—which calls the structures "charmingly stoic and exasperatingly austere." continue to blog

'Will Scott: Seaside Shelters' is an end-of-summer staff favorite

"There is nothing, quite possibly, more British than the seaside shelter," Edwin Heathcote writes in this end-of-summer staff favorite, "the sense it embodies of a struggle against the elements; the loneliness of a small structure outlined against the vast horizon of the sea on a rainy day; the optimism of a day out at the seaside despite the weather; the municipal sense of a public good which is now mostly a memory. These small, intimate, curious works of micro-architecture are simultaneously reminders of a very particular world-view, nostalgia pods and wonderfully public places, perhaps the last architecture owned by us and open to all at any time of the day or year." Featured image is from Blackpool, Lancashire, UK. continue to blog

Will Scott photographed British sea shelters—among the smallest and the biggest hearted buildings ever built

Will Scott photographed British sea shelters—among the smallest and the biggest hearted buildings ever built

This seaside shelter in Cromer, Norfolk, UK, is reproduced from Will Scott: Seaside Shelters, Heni Publishing's delightful new collection of Scott's photos of the astonishing array of shelters that populate the British coastline. Essayist Edwin Heathcote describes the shelters as "one of the few examples of an arena in which the British succeeded in creating an enduring architecture for everyone: young and old, homeless, left-alone, cantankerous or drunk. Seaside shelters have no doors, no opening times, no profit motive and no real defined purpose. They are just there. They are, perhaps, paradoxically, among the saddest and the most joyous, the smallest and the biggest hearted buildings ever built." continue to blog
