In seek of solutions for structure, nature shows how simple and strong it can be. Marco Casagrande, Finnish Architect and nature’s fannatic, consolidates architectural designs and installations, inspired by environmental awareness. In his 2012 Sandworm castle, he creates a structure made out of woven willow, extracted from its rod-like branches. Similar to wicker trees, these woods are less likely to split when woven, which makes them perfect for furniture construction, ropes, and skins such as the Sandworm structure developed by this curious architect.
