Structures on the Edge

The Structures on the Edge (SOTE) project is a natural progression of the BathingBeauties® project. SOTE is continuing the theme of exploring and developing small scale art-led interventions as part of the evolving linear gallery of coastal architecture.

SOTE has provided a series of semi-remote coastal locations for artists and architects to realise permanent installations and interventions that will enhance our relationship with the natural environment of the UK coastline. The potential sites on the 10 mile stretch of coast between Chapel St. Leonards and Mablethorpe on the Lincolnshire coast.

SOTE could be platforms, landings, hides, shelters, havens, lookouts or other structures designed by artists and architects for the appreciation, enjoyment and understanding of the coastal environment. They may have a specific purpose such as wave watching; cloud spotting; star gazing or climate observation, they may react to or interact with the natural elements in dynamic and surprising ways or they may simply provide a shelter or contemplative place for quiet appreciation.
