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.

Take a look at the set-up above and stay tuned for a closer look at the space. For more art news, check out this week’s list of best art drops.
