Dunescape, an award-winning installation designed by cutting-edge Gotham firm SHoP (also commissioned to build NYC’s Museum of Sex, planned for 2002), features cabanas, misters, a sauna, and wading pools.

BEACH BLANKET BINGO
Warm Up 2000, a Saturday afternoon music series running through Sept. 2 in the courtyard, has attracted international DJs like Dimitri from Paris and Thomas Brinkmann. Inside, there’s Volume: Bed of Sound, with massive futons for lounging and listening to music by artists like Japanese electronic-pop duo Cibo Matto and alt-rock mainstay Sonic Youth.
