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.
