  • This ocean of 1 million plastic balls is coming to Bangkok

Ever wondered what it's like to swim among 1 million plastic balls? You can soon find out when Central Embassy welcomes the massive interactive art installation dubbed The Beach this May 18-Jun 18.

Created by Brooklyn design firm Snarkitechture, the project reimagines the natural and cultural elements of an ordinary summer's day at the beach by replacing sand with 1 million recyclable plastic balls to create an unforgettable experience.

The installation made its debut at the National Building Museum in Washington in 2015 and is now on a world tour throughout spring of 2017, including a stop by Central Embassy as part of a celebration to mark the official "completion" of the mall and the opening of Park Hyatt Bangkok. 

Aside from playing in the ball pit entirely for free, you'll also get a chance to meet with the designers of Snarkitechture on May 19 between 2-3pm at Central Embassy's Open House (6/F) where they'll be holding a casual discussion about their design process.
