reading minimalism

Fast becoming one of the world’s most sought-after studios, Snarkitecture has designed installations, architecture, products, and furniture for a diverse range of clients including COS, Kith, Calvin Klein, the New Museum, Kartell, and Beats by Dr. Dre. This book presents more than 70 of their projects and investigates how its founders, artist Daniel Arsham and architect Alex Mustonen, work on the interface between their disciplines to come up with some of the most beguiling and fascinating designs seen in recent years.

Published by Phaidon, this beautiful monograph presents Snarkitecture's many projects, ranging from objects to installations to interiors. Snarkitecture was established between disciplines, exploring the unknown with the goal of reimagining our everyday surroundings to create the extraordinary. The structure of the book is primarily informed by this exploration and presents the studio’s work along with a spectrum of “Not Art” to “Not Architecture.” The book also explores the history and growth of Snarkitecture’s studio, through sketches, imagery, and an informal conversation among the three partners.

The authors and co-founders Alex Mustonen and Daniel Arsham, are both graduates of the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art.
