Fun House
National Building Museum
Washington D.C.

Fun House is Snarkitecture’s first comprehensive museum exhibition. Initially installed at the National Building Museum in Washington D.C. and curated by Italy-based Maria Cristina Didero, the heart of the exhibition is presented within a Snarkitecture-designed house—a freestanding structure that recalls and re-imagines the idea of the traditional home filtered through Snarkitecture’s lens. Fun House includes a sequence of interactive rooms that reference familiar elements of a house, along with related spaces and programs. The feeling of a home is recalled by the proportion, scale, and materials that make up Fun House. Abstracted elements like a kitchen cabinet display or bathtub, reference a familiar domestic interior, while allowing people to experience the world of Snarkitecture. Fun House includes over fifty Snarkitecture environments and objects, like Dig (2011) and Drift (2012), as well as new concepts developed specifically for each exhibition location. Designed to be a traveling exhibition, Fun House was intially designed to accomodate a variety of different and will continue travelling to cultural institutions worldwide.
