Marco Casagrande sandworm

What an incredible feet to mastermind this brilliant construction I feel if I was an ant underneath a cane piece of furniture this would be the view I would be faced with.

Sandworm by Finnish environmental artist and architect Marco Casagrande is an organic structure/space/creature realized on the dunes of the Wenduine coastline, Belgium. The 45 meters long and 10 m wide and high installation moves freely in-between architecture and environmental art and is constructed entirely out of willow following the local knowledge of working with sand and willow. Casagrande worked hard with his team of young architects and local experts for 4 weeks in order to create something that he describes as 「weak architecture」 – a human made structure that wishes to become part of nature through flexibility and organic presence.
