OPEN’s Dune Art Museum has topped out recently. When workers removed the complicated form work and other protective measures, organic shaped concrete shells are exposed, revealing the sophisticated and powerful structure of this building – it’s a moment of pure excitement, but also a state of transience – as the construction progresses, the structure will eventually be covered with sands and the dunes’ original state will be restored, including the indigenous shrubs that stabilize the sands. Except for the skylights, openings and a viewing platform that appear floating above the dunes, the building will quietly disappear, like a group of mysterious caves hidden in the dunes.
