EVENT: The Beach Tampa

The Beach Tampa at Amalie Arena

 

The Vinik Family Foundation invites Tampa Bay to share in an interactive architectural installation that will bring a beach to downtown Tampa.

The Beach Tampa at Amalie Arena

Created by Snarkitecture, The Beach Tampa is a 15,000 square foot immersive environment featuring an “ocean” of 1.2 million recyclable and antimicrobial white balls. Open to the public at no cost, The Beach Tampa begins August 5, 2016 and runs through August 25, 2016 at AMALIE Arena.The Beach will be staged in an all-white enclosure made of construction materials including scaffolding, wall panels, and perforated mesh, creating a sense of wonder and anticipation, while also recalling a boardwalk beach arcade. Visitors of all ages are encouraged to go for a “swim”, enjoy the view from the water’s edge, or stroll along the pier. The shore will be a site of relaxation and activity, complete with monochromatic beach hut, beach chairs, umbrellas, and other beach activities for visitors. The 75-foot wide shoreline opens up to an ocean of balls enclosed within mirrored walls that will create an infinite reflected expanse.The white balls comprising the ocean are protected with GermBLOCK, a safe, powerful agent that provides antimicrobial protection for guests against 50 different germs and bacteria for the life of the ball.
