Ball Nogues

BIOGRAPHY

Ball-Nogues Studio is an integrated design and fabrication practice that creates experimental built environments to enhance and celebrate the potential for social interaction through sensation, spectacle, and physical engagement. To achieve these results, principals Benjamin Ball and Gaston Nogues work with unusual materials, develop new digital tools, and apply architectural techniques in unorthodox ways. The partners share an enthusiasm for the fabrication process as it relates to the built object both physically and poetically - they let the properties, limitations, and economic scenarios associated with a material guide a structure's ultimate form while developing methods to extend the intertwined boundaries of a material's aesthetics, physical potential, and lifecycle.
