20 Brutalist Sandcastles By Calvin Seibert
Some would say that building these incredibly complex and detailed sand castles is a complete waste of time. But for architectural genius Calvin Seibert, it’s a way to express his wildest ideas and share them with everybody.
New York-based sculptor is known for turning beaches into galleries for the Brutalist architecture: “As I became more aware of architecture in the wider world Brutalism was one of the styles of the moment. Looking at architecture magazines as a child and seeing hotels in French ski resorts (Marcel Breuer at Flaine) made of concrete suited my sensibility, I was hooked,” he told Arch daily.
He’s already made more than 200 of these incredible structures: “Once I begin building and forms start to take shape, I can start to see where things are going and either follow that road or attempt to contradict it with something unexpected. In my mind they are always mash-ups of influences and ideas,” Calvin explains. “They become organic machines that might continue to grow and expand.“
