Description

Some people try to build the most durable buildings that will survive for many centuries as a testament to their hard work. Others are fond of less permanent forms and they invest their knowledge, energy and creativity in making impressive castles in the sand. Every summer, a beach in Galveston Texas, becomes a great building site. Instead of large concrete boxes, the builders try to impress the visitors and the jury with monumental sand castles. The organizers believe that this is “one of the world's largest sandcastle competitions”, so expect nothing less than pure architectural perfection. If you are an architect, engineer or a designer, you can team up and try to compete with other professional builders. However, everyone is more than welcome to support the builders and do a spot of sightseeing of freshly made castles in the sand.
