EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Welcome to Episode 9 of “The Art of The Interview with Steven Adams”.

Steve welcomes Architect, Designer, Conceptualist - Ben Ball, of Ball-Nogues Studio.

In his current collaboration with Gaston Nogues, Benjamin Ball is exploring the intersection of architecture, art and product design through physical modeling and the use of digital and more traditional forms of production.

A major goal of his design endeavors is to create experiences; because of this, he feels "a building that is not built is not architecture."

A graduate of the Southern California Institute of Architecture, Ball logged stints at Gehry Partners and Shirdel Zago Kipnis. He has worked as a set and production designer for films (including the Matrix series) as well as music videos and commercials with such influential directors as Mark Romanek and Tony Scott.

His experience ranges from work on the Disney Concert Hall and small residential commissions for boutique firms to complex medical structures and event design.

BALL-NOGUES STUDIO
In 2006, Ball-Nogues Studio was awarded the Best of Category distinction for Environments for their installation Maximilian's Schell by ID Magazine. Ball-Nogues is the recipient of two Los Angeles AIA Design Awards and Interior Design Magazines Best of Year Award for their installation Rip Curl Canyon.

In 2007 their installation Liquid Sky was the winner of the Museum of Modern Art / P.S.1's Young Architect's Program competition and Ball-Nogues became one three design teams who were awarded a United States Artists Target Fellowship.

In 2008 their site specific installation Echoes Converge appeared at the 11th Venice Biennale of Architecture and an exhibit of their work appeared at the Bejing Biennale.

The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles will host a new installation by the team in the summer of 2009. T
