The Sandworm – an unappealing name for a beautiful structure. A hybrid of architecture and environmental art, designed by Marco Casagrande.
The 45-meter long, 10-meter wide structure rests on the dunes of the Wenduine coastline in Belgium. It is constructed solely of willow.
Casagrande describes the style as ‘weak architecture’. He allows the light and shadows to form fantastical patterns, which you have no choice but to interact with as you walk through the body of the worm.
The space was designed for picnics, relaxation and ‘post industrial meditation’ (?).
I’m a fan of The Sandworm, it is an incredibly unique space that integrates with nature flawlessly. What do you think?
