'Sandworm' is a giant sheltering structure made entirely from willow tree branches and sand. Created by Finnish architects Marco Casagrande and C-Lab, this sculpture lies in a sand dune in Wenduine, Belgium.
This massive public art statuary runs 45 meters in length with a height and width of 10 meters; it was made for beach goers to appreciate the drastic light and shadowing effects. It's an organic shell made with willow branches that are woven throughout the entire structure, creating a really fascinating facade when observing from inside.
From afar, the art work looks like a giant sleeping on its side; it's been coined as "weak architecture," which means it's something made by humans with a desire to be a part of mother nature.
Take a trip to this beach to get a glimpse 'Sandworm,' which is on display up until the end of September.
