“Fun House” at the National Building Museum Puts a Quirky Spin on Traditional Architecture
NYC-based firm Snarkitecture walks the line between art and architecture with its unique buildings and interior design. To celebrate 10 years of its quirky creations, Snarkitecture debuted Fun House at the National Building Museum on the Fourth of July. Now through September 3rd, the free-standing installation showcases the firm’s offbeat and artsy approach to building.
Fun House is a temporary structure standing in the heart of the museum’s Great Hall. It consists of interactive rooms that emulate those you’d find in a typical home, but always with an unexpected and artistic twist. If you’ve experienced any of Snarkitecture’s previous installations, you may recognize some of the rooms that have been inspired by previous masterpieces. The rooms unravel the history of the architecture firm until you head into the backyard, where a pool teeming with thousands of recyclable plastic balls serves as the final cherry on top of an unparalleled masterpiece. Tickets are $16 for adults and $13 for kids, students, and seniors.
