Alex Mustonen is the founder and partner of Snarkitecture, a New York-based collaborative design practice established to investigate the boundaries between disciplines. Snarkitecture’s name is drawn from Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of the Snark, a poem describing the “impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an inconceivable creature.” In its search for the unknown, Snarkitecture creates architectural-scale projects, installations and objects. By transforming the familiar into the extraordinary, Snarkitecture makes architecture perform the unexpected.
