All aboard See Monster: BDM advises on landmark offshore platform art installation

All aboard See Monster BDM advises on landmark offshore platform art installation | BDM Blog | BDM Law

We are delighted to have been involved in the legal work on behalf of NEWSUBSTANCE relating to the decommissioned North Sea gas platform which has been transformed into SEE MONSTER. A world first project, SEE MONSTER is one of the UK’s largest art installations, now open to the public and located in Weston-super-Mare.

Standing at over 35-metres tall, SEE MONSTER features four levels which host a wild garden of plants, grasses and trees and also an amphitheatre, a kinetic installation that forms the monster’s “scales” and a waterfall. The project shows how industrial structures can be reimagined for art, ecology, education and recreational purposes. SEE MONSTER can be visited free of charge up to early November 2022. We are looking forward to getting on board the monster soon!

The firm’s partner Pavlo Samothrakis and Managing Associate Stephen Mann worked on this unique project alongside NEWSUBSTANCE, who were responsible for bringing the project to life.

More information about SEE MONSTER can be found here.
