Croatian architect Nikola Bašić’s design collaborates with the Adriatic Sea! via mymodernmet
he designed a 230-foot morse orgulje (or sea organ) that uses the rhythm of the waves to play a melody. On the surface, this creation may look like an ordinary set of white stone steps, but it’s actually covered in various holes. These openings lead to chambers within the instrument that connect to 35 organ pipes. As the waves ebb and flow, air is pushed through the inner channels at the bottom of the stairs and out the upper whistle-holes that play sweet-sounding tunes. This makes for a harmonious alliance between man and nature.
