Alix Doussot – Beach Access System
with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Christian Spiess, Maddalena Casadei
In 2015, a French law required public places to be made accessible to everyone. Considered sensitive due to its nature, the sea shore was not subjected to the same measures as in cities. This system provides access to sand and water for everyone, including people with reduced mobility, throughout the year, while establishing permanent boundaries between transit areas and areas to preserve. The whole system is made up of three types of wooden floor and steel elements that facilitate movement and that can withstand the harsh coastal weather conditions.
