Snarkitecture is back at it again with the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., with big plans for a brand new, large-scale, interactive exhibition. According to the National Building Museum website, this will be Snarkitecture’s first comprehensive museum exhibition, which will run from July 4 through September 3.

The exhibition, called Fun House, is part of the annual Summer Block Party event that the museum has organized for several years now. Past events have included Studio Gang’s Hive, James Corner Field Operations’s ICEBERGS, and Bjarke Ingels Group’s (BIG) BIG Maze. Snarkitecture has also created an interactive, summer exhibition for the museum before, known as THE BEACH, which welcomed over 180,000 visitors.

The upcoming exhibition from Snarkitecture will involve building a freestanding house in the museum’s Great Hall that “recalls and re-imagines the idea of the traditional home” with interactive rooms, featuring environments and objects related to the 10-year-old Snarkitecture. There will also be a front and backyard with “outdoor” activities. Curating the exhibition will be Maria Cristina Didero.

There are currently no renderings or illustrations publicly available yet of what Fun House will look like.
