Where industry meets creativity

We’re taking a decommissioned offshore platform from the North Sea, transporting it to the UK, planting it on the Somerset coast and transforming it into SEE MONSTER – a huge new public art installation and visitor experience. This must-see landmark opens in Weston-super-Mare this summer.

SEE MONSTER is a celebration of how we can use our past to shape our future. Harnessing renewable energy from the great British weather, this reimagined platform will feature experiments, performances, gardens and even waterfalls – showcasing local innovation, and showing how creativity can challenge and change the status quo.

SEE MONSTER is being brought to life on the site of Weston’s iconic Tropicana lido by Leeds-based studio NEWSUBSTANCE with support from Weston-super-Mare Town Council and North Somerset Council. Throughout the UNBOXED summer, it will stand as a vivid reminder of our shared past – and a symbol of our united journey towards a more sustainable future.
