Benjamin Ball trained as an architect at SCI-Arc. In 2004, he founded Ball-Nogues Studio with Gaston Nogues, where he explores an intersection of public art, architecture and fabrication. The Studio produces a diverse body of work with the aim of making environments that enhance sensation, generate spectacle and invite physical engagement. Ben grew up in Colorado and Iowa where his mother’s involvement in theatre and his father’s obsession with tennis proved influential. A competitive tennis player as a teen, he dusted off his rackets in 2014 for the cause of Art and in hope of winning the MAK Cup.
