The “Beach” by Snarkitecture

New York studio Snarkitecture has transformed the grand hall of the National Building Museum in Washington DC into a “beach”  featuring an ocean that is essentially a ball-pit comprised of nearly one million recyclable translucent plastic balls.The Beach is built out of construction materials such as scaffolding, wooden panels, and perforated mesh, all clad in stark white, consistent with Snarkitecture’s aesthetic. “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,” says the National Building Museum.
