1.000.000 PLASTIC BALLS

When you have spent the whole summer weekend at 40ºC, a post like this is always welcomed. Even it’s a fake swimming pool. But you know, you can always cheat your subconscious.

The National Building Museum in Washington has joined nearly 1 million translucent plastic balls in a 10.000 square feet summer installation called “The Beach”. It is designed by Snarkitecture, a Brooklyn design studio consisting of founders Alex Mustonen and Daniel Arsham.

The monochromatic elevated room in the museum’s Great Hall offers kids and adults a gently sloping “shoreline” studded with white beach chairs and umbrellas.

Text is completely unnecessary in some posts. You only need images to turn on your imagination.

And one more obvious thing: my girls would be crazy inside this pool (even as crazy as me!)
