The Beach is an interactive architectural installation designed by Snarkitecture for the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. It ran from July 4 – September 7, 2015.

Taking cues from the familiar experience of a summer day at the beach, Snarkitecture abstracted both the natural and cultural elements of the beach to create a reduced, monochromatic environment inside the museum’s Great Hall.

Scaffolding, drywall, and mirrors were utilized to create an enclosure that led to an ocean of 750,000 recyclable plastic balls. The Beach welcomed visitors to explore, play and relax in a fully immersive and unique setting with other museum patrons.
