First Friday
Snarkitecture

Join Snarkitecture at its office for drinks, conversation, and a behind the scenes look at their ongoing work. The League’s First Fridays are monthly opportunities for League members to visit the offices of leading design practices to see work on the boards and learn more about the offices’ organization and design processes. These informal social gatherings feature brief office tours and presentations along with happy hour drinks arranged by the host office.

Snarkitecture is a New York-based practice “established to investigate the boundaries between art and architecture.” The firm’s name is drawn from Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of The Snark, an 1876 poem describing the “impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an inconceivable creature.” Founded by Alex Mustonen and Daniel Arsham, Snarkitecture creates architectural projects, installations, and objects focused “on the reinterpretation of everyday materials, structures and programs to new and imaginative effect.”

Main projects include The Beach, an interactive installation commissioned by the National Building Museum in Washington D.C. and currently on tour worldwide; Drift, an entrance pavilion for the Design Miami/ fair in 2012; interiors for Valextra’s Milan flagship; interiors for KITH stores in Miami and New York City; and Loop, an installation for Gana Art Gallery in Seoul created in collaboration with fashion brand COS in 2017.
