"Sandworm" Rises on the Beach in Belgium

It's environmental architectural art as attraction. Called "Sandworm," the organic structure on the dunes of the Wenduine coastline in Belgium, is 45 meters long and 10 meters wide and constructed entirely out of willow. Finnish artist Marco Casagrande and his team of architects and local experts took four weeks to create what he dubs as "weak architecture" (a human-made structure that wishes to become part of nature through flexibility and organic presence).

In news reports visitors are saying that Sandworm is like a willow cathedral and offers a spectacle of light of shadow. The inside space is used for picnics, relaxation and meditation. Visit archdaily.com for more photographs and information.
