Architect Nikola Basic has recently received the European Prize for Urban Public Space for the very cool Sea Organ project, an architectural and experimental musical object located in Zadar, Croatia.
"The Sea Organ is a pipe organ that has a set of 35 musically tuned tubes located underneath a set of large marble steps played by the sea waves. The movement of the sea pushes air through, and depending on the size and force of the wave, it produces a somewhat random but harmonic sound." (thePompomist.com)
