Central Embassy is temporary home to an interactive art display called “The Beach.”At this amazing indoor beach, you can play ball in the middle of the high-end mall without anybody looking at you funny or complaining. The Beach has been designed by Snarkitecture, a New York-based collaborative consisting of the three artists Daniel Arsham, Alex Mustonen and Benjamin Porto. Coming from the United States, The Beach premiered in Washington D.C in 2015 in an exhibition together with the National Building Museum. Before coming to Bangkok, the installation was shown in Florida and Sydney.
When it was first showcased in Washington D.C., "The Beach" contained 1.000.000 almost transparent, antimicrobial plastic balls. In Bangkok the installation is not as big as space is limited and features only about 300,000 balls. The balls are of course recyclable and are cleaned each time before being reused. We know, it tickles every time you walk passed an IKEA ball-pit. So take the chance and jump into "The Beach" without being judged!
Sit on "The Beach" without getting roasted by the sun and enjoy the air-condition. You will not be required to buy a swim suit, but you need to pay 50 Baht for a pair of socks for hygiene reasons. Generally entry is free, there are also free lockers for your bags and stuff. See you later at "The Beach"!
