Designed by Snarkitecture, an experimental design firm, the beach has a sloping white beachfront surrounded by mirrors, which creates an illusion of a two-fold space. Aside from that, there is also a concession stand, hosted by Union Kitchen, a D.C.-based food incubator.

The plastic bubble beach is built in an area, built out of different construction materials like wooden panels, and scaffolding. In its 50-foot wide shoreline, several monochromatic beach chairs and umbrellas can be seen.

Every year, the National Building Museum hosts a variety of interactive and fun installations. Last year, they had a giant maze that visitors may navigate and get lost in.

On September 2015, they will be opening the enormous beach of plastic bubbles, so if ever you are in Washington, D.C., at that time, make sure you stop by at the museum.
