The Beach at the National Building Museum

The National Building Museum in Washington D.C. hosts a 10,000 square foot ball pit filled by nearly one million recyclable translucent plastic balls.

“The beach” is the brainchild of Brooklyn-based studio Snarkitecture, who sees the project as ‘an exciting opportunity to create an architectural installation that reimagines the qualities and possibilities of material, encourages exploration and interaction with one’s surroundings, and offers an unexpected and memorable landscape for visitors to relax and socialize within.’
