Calvin Seibert’s Sand Castles

These amazing sand castles were built by Calvin Seibert’s. He want to spend 6 weeks doing this but rarely find a day to make this. He says “I always have these ideas that I want to try but somehow in the attempt to get something done by the end of the day I turn towards my old standby solutions. I need to spend 6 weeks on the beach all at once. As it is I only get a day here and there and go whole years without building anything. If I could manage that I might get somewhere new.

People have been asking about my influences. Gottfried Bohm is a big one. I also like the early “organic” buildings by Aldo Rossi like the Casa del Potuale, Napoli. I think of set designer/architect Adolphe Appia and his use of shadows. The astronomical observatories in Jaipur. The Cathedral in Abidjan. Buildings by Paul Rudolph and the work of Lawrence Halprin. As for Frank Gehry which everyone mentions I point to the Berlin Philharmonic hall by Hans Scharoun instead”.
