Snarkitecture is a collaborative in NYC that has caught our eye with its landscapes of white architectural foam. For the Richard Chai store beneath the High Line, the group has sculpted a fashionable cavern to display the designer collection in a glacial atmosphere. The range of shelves, niches, hang bars, and other features embedded within the form engage the designer’s curatorial eye for display.

At the close of the temporary installation, the material was returned to the manufacturer and recycled into rigid foam insulation. You can catch up with Snarkitecture at its 2011 installation at the Storefront for Art and Architecture. Snarkitecture was established by Alex Mustonen and Daniel Arsham and is represented by Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin.
