Snarkitecture to Install Immersive "Fun House" at National Building Museum
Filled with interactive rooms.
Daniel Arsham and Alex Mustonen of Snarkitecture teamed up with the National Building Museum in Washington, DC on an upcoming exhibition titled “Fun House.” Curated by Italy-based Maria Cristina Didero, the immersive showcase will boast a series of interactive rooms that are all located inside a traditional-looking home. Each of the rooms will feature unique environments and objects that pay homage to Snarkitecture’s ten-year-long studio concepts. As a whole, the exhibition will completely take over the institution’s historic Great Hall.
Highlights of the exhibition include a recreation of Snarkitecture’s A Memorial Bowing (2012) in the museum’s west court, the Playhouse (2017) in the backyard, and a kidney-shaped pool filled with thousands of recyclable plastic balls that pays homage to the studio’s The BEACH installation initially developed back in 2015. “Fun House represents a unique opportunity for us to bring together a number of different Snarkitecture-designed interiors, installations, and objects into a single, immersive experience,” said Alex Mustonen, co-founder of Snarkitecture. “Fun House” will be officially unveiled this July 4 up until September 3.
