This Is The World’s Coolest Marble Run

The architecture firm Snarkitecture turns every kid’s favorite kinetic toy into a work of art, with a new installation for the fashion brand COS.

From a millennial pink-tinged pop-up store to a cavernous maze composed of dangling ribbons, the collaborations between the fashion brand COS and architecture firm Snarkitecture have been nothing short of breathtaking. The latest is no different: It’s a 1,300-foot-long, powder-blue marble run twisted into a serpentine sculpture.

Installed at the Gana Art Center, in Seoul, Loop is as much a visual experience as it is an aural one. Every five seconds, visitors are invited to release glass marbles onto one of the four intertwined tracks. As the marbles roll through the metal run, they create a steady hum before they wind up in an adjacent room where they fall into an ever-growing pile.
