Posted in a.n.t., talks with tags , , , , on October 14, 2010 by Ilan Dei Studio

The AFLA along with Ilan Dei Studio is pleased to present:

Ball-Nogues Studio is an integrated design and fabrication practice led by Benjamin Ball and Gaston Nogues. The Studio creates experimental built environments to enhance and celebrate the potential for social interaction through sensation, spectacle and physical engagement via the production of architecture, art and industrial objects. They work with unusual materials, develop new digital tools, and apply architectural techniques in unorthodox ways. They seek opportunities to build that are outside the treacherous restraints of the conventional architectural milieu.

The Studio has exhibited at major institutions throughout the world, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Museum of Modern Art: the Guggenheim Museum: and PS1, to name a few. They have received numerous honors including two AIA Design Awards, United States Artists Target Fellowships and a grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts. Recently, their work became part of the collection at MoMA.

AFLA Members are free. Non-Members pay $5 at the door.
