Benjamin Ball works at the nexus of installation, architecture, and industrial design. He is one half of Ball-Nogues Studio, a Los Angeles-based design and fabrication practice that creates experimental built environments to enhance and celebrate the potential for social interaction through sensation, spectacle, and physical engagement by working with unusual materials, developing new digital tools, and applying architectural techniques in unorthodox ways. With collaborator Gaston Nogues, Ball has exhibited at major institutions throughout the world, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Museum of Modern Art; the Guggenheim Museum; MoMA PS1; Indianapolis Museum of Art; Musée d'Art Contemporain de Bordeaux; the Venice Biennale; the Hong Kong | Shenzhen Biennale; and the Beijing Biennale. The pair has received numerous honors including two AIA Design Awards, United States Artists Fellowships, and a grant from the Graham Foundation.
