'Sandwaves' is a fascinating sand installation that is done in collaboration between Chris Precht and Mamou-Mani Architects. The structures are located in Diryah, Saudi Arabia — more specifically, they are intended to elevate "a sports and entertainment event in the Al-Turaif District."
The sand installation captures the attention of individuals as it is subject to a very intricate and tech-forward structural technique. In order to weave the 'Sandwaves' pavilion, Christ Precht and Mamou-Mani Architects 3D-printed the formations out of sand and as a result, created shapes that were completely sustainable. In a sense, this sand installation promotes "the kind of innovation that is needed for our time," with a focus on the design and architecture industries.
'Sandwaves' is recognized as "the largest sand-printed installation to date."
