Washington D.C. Museum Transformed Into Massive Ball Pit

Your childhood dreams have become reality! Brooklyn-based design studio Snarkitecture‘s The Beach is an architectural installation which has created a massively-fun, massively-huge 10,000sqft ball pit inside of Washington D.C.’s National Building Museum.

Meant to bring all the carefree fun of summertime to the heart of the city, the interactive installation overwhelms its visitors’ senses. For those who need a break, white beach chairs and umbrellas can be found at the 50ft wide ‘shoreline’ which meets the sea of translucent balls.

It’s organizers describe the exhibition 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.”

The Beach can be experienced now through September 7, 2015 at The National Building Museum in Washington D.C. View photos from the event below.
