It seems like every day we hear chatter about Hudson Yards, the new neighborhood on Manhattan’s West Side set to open in March. When complete, Hudson Yards will include cultural institutions, world-class shopping and restaurants, 4,000 state-of-art modern residences, a new 750-seat public school, and more than five acres of public plazas, gardens and groves.


So naturally, we were very excited to hear that New York-based design studio Snarkitecture announced Snark Park, the firm’s first permanent exhibition space that will be located within Hudson Yards. Snark Park will live as a site for rotating immersive installations housing design environments for all ages to explore, discover and enjoy. We like to think of it as a continuation of Fun House.


In a statement to Art Zealous, Snarkitecture partner Ben Porto said, “Snark Park is Snarkitecture’s first permanent space. We are thrilled for it to be included in the new Hudson Yards portfolio – we are eager to share our projects with the city of New York and encourage visitors to experience Snark Park as part of the city’s larger cultural landscape. As you may be familiar, the Highline opens right into this new neighborhood – also complimentary, are the robust offerings from the soon-to-open Shed and Vessel.”



Introducing a tri-annual exhibition schedule, Snark Park will debut unique, playful design environments that incorporate Snarkitecture’s use of unconventional materials and concepts of reduction and monochrome. The first exhibition Lost and Found, opening March 15, 2019, will encourage visitors to lose themselves in a maze of massive, inhabitable columns, some of which are large enough to occupy and many of which offer unique audible and experiences.


Each installation will be accompanied by a unique retail experience, including an exclusive partnership with KITH Treats, Snarkitecture-designed limited edition objects, as well as one-of-a-kind collaborations.
