On July 4, 2018, New York design firm Snarkitecture will debut “Fun House,” a retrospective of the firm’s compelling portfolio at the National Building Museum in Washington. It’s the firm’s first comprehensive museum exhibition, but not its first collaboration with the Museum. In 2015, the two entities joined forces for The BEACH, in which over one million translucent plastic balls blanketed 10,000 square feet of the institution’s great hall. “Fun House,” curated by Maria Cristina Didero, will mimic that sense of whimsy and interactivity, but at a multiplied scale. Visitors can roam rooms featuring popular Snarkitecture projects and items, as well as new ideas designed specifically for Fun House.

“’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 co-founder Alex Mustonen. “Our practice aims to create moments that make architecture accessible and engaging to a wide, diverse audience. With that in mind, we are excited to invite all visitors to the National Building Museum to an exhibition and installation that we hope is both unexpected and memorable.”
