SNARKITECTURE is a Brooklyn, New York based collaborative practice founded by Daniel Arsham and Alex Mustonen.

They defines themselves as "the impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an inconceivable creature".

Actually they do amazing things,you just need to give a look at their website to agree with us. 

In October, 2010 Snarkitecture paired with fashion designer Richard Chai to create a temporary retail installation at 504 West 24th Street in New York, NY.  The collaboration was the fourth in a series of five installations presented by the non-profit organization Building Fashion.  Snarkitecture’s design for the space uses a single material to fill an existing container beneath the Highline.  White EPS foam was carved by hand to create a “glacial cavern” for the display of Richard Chai’s collection.

The material was recycled back into rigid insulation at the close of the project. 

This project makes us drool!
