National Building Museum- The Beach

Snarkitecture take over the National Building Museum with their latest installation, 'The Beach.' Comprised of nearly a million monochromatic, translucent, recyclable balls, 'The Beach' takes visitors on a new kind of summer getaway where they can “splash” about in a 10,000 square-foot ball pool.

Spanning across the Museum’s Great Hall, the BEACH, is contained within an enclosure and built out of construction materials such as scaffolding, wooden panels, and perforated mesh, all clad in stark white. Monochromatic beach chairs and umbrellas sprinkle the 50-foot wide “shoreline,” and the “ocean” culminates in a mirrored wall that creates a seemingly infinite reflected expanse. Visitors are welcome to “swim” in the ocean, or can spend an afternoon at the “shore’s” edge reading a good book, play beach-related activities such as paddleball, grab a refreshing drink at the snack bar, or dangle their feet in the ocean off the pier.
