A futuristic park breaks boundaries at Hudson Yards.
Snarkitecture partners Daniel Arsham, Alex Mustonen and Ben Porto are behind Snark Park, an out-of-this-world park at Hudson Yards.
“Please do touch the art,” reads signage as curious visitors enter Snark Park. While a lot at Hudson Yards feels like it landed in Manhattan from a land farther away than Mars, the multifaceted exhibition space stands among the hoopla. Dreamt up by NYC-based design studio Snarkitecture, Snark Park will house a series of immersive art installations that explore a rotating program of design environments. Its opening exhibit, Lost and Found, debuted last month. Inspired by a make-believe enchanted forest, the installation features a labyrinth of massive, inhabitable columns that challenge visitors to engage with their surroundings with fresh perspectives, using material changes and unexpected twists to reveal secret worlds.
