About Ball-Nogues Studio

Although trained as architects, members of the Ball-Nogues Studio chart a space between architecture, design, and installation work. The Los Angeles-based firm takes its inspiration from classical architectural features and motifs—such as the dome or cathedral window—but uses nontraditional materials like cardboards, string, or glass beads. Each installation or environment responds to specific sites but is united by undulating lines, a sense of movement, and porous surfaces that filter and engage natural light. Their projects, including a Young Architects Program-winning installation at MoMA PS1, often feature temporary, immersive structures, performance stages, and architectural sculptures designed to be located inside or atop existing buildings.
