Structures on the Edge

The Structures on the Edge project explores developing small scale art-led coastal architecture.

It provides a series of semi-remote coastal locations for artists and architects. They can create installations to enhance the natural environment of the coastline.

The potential sites on the 10-mile stretch of coast between Chapel St. Leonards and Mablethorpe on the Lincolnshire coast.

The installations could be platforms, landings, hides, shelters, havens, lookouts or other structures. They help people appreciate, enjoy and understand the coastal environment.

They may:

  • have a specific purpose such as wave watching; cloud spotting; star gazing or climate observation
  • react to or interact with the natural elements in dynamic and surprising ways
  • simply provide a shelter or contemplative place for quiet appreciation.
