BEAUTY: Installation--Snarkitecture

Snarkitecture, a collaborative and experimental practice operating in territories between art and architecture, have created a marvelous installation called The Beach, now at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.

Snarkitecture describe the installation on their website:
"The Beach is an interactive architectural installation designed by Snarkitecture for the National Building Museum. Taking cues from the familiar experience of a summer day at the beach, Snarkitecture has abstracted both the natural and cultural elements of the beach to create a reduced, monochromatic environment inside the museum’s Great Hall. Standard construction materials like scaffolding, drywall, and mirrors are utilized to create the enclosure that leads to an ocean of 750,000 recyclable plastic balls. The Beach welcomes visitors to explore, play and relax in a fully immersive and unique setting."

The Beach is on view through September 7, 2015.
