SANDSTORM BY MACRO CASAGRANDE

by Miryam Muller in


Sandworm is an organic structure realized on the dunes of the Wenduine coastline, Belgium. The installation is made entirely out of willow and is 45 metres long & 10 metres wide & high. Inside the sandworm you are greeted by a natural spectacle of light and shadow. Finnish artist Marco Casagrande believes that architectural control goes against nature and thus also against architecture. The built human environment is a mediator between human nature & nature itself. He believes design should not replace reality. The building must grow out of the location, it must react to its environment, it must be a reflection of life and also be itself, as every other living being.
