Perched on a spectacular slope along the Andaman Sea on the Phuket Peninsula of Thailand, this project is designed to be seen from both the land view of the sculpture, as well as seen from the salt water bay below. Built for M. L. Tridhosyuth Devakul, the Pagoda is designed to pay homage to the natural in this beautiful part of Thailand, which is ever–shrinking, due to rampant development. Both the roughness of the method of earthcasting, as well as the cracks and holes through the piece, creates residences for birds and bugs.
