Maxmilian Scheil’s Lecture at Rice University

From the LA Metblog:

Benjamin Ball and Gaston Nogues, the architects who designed Maximilian’s Schell at Materials & Applications in my beloved neighborhood of Silver Lake from June through November 2005, are giving a talk about that piece today at Rice University in Houston.

The installation was composed of a matrix of 504 triangles, made of Mylar laminated over bundled Nylon and Kevlar fibers, joined together with clear polycarbonate rivets. The resulting vortex-shaped canopy created a quiet enclave where visitors could sit and enjoy the installation’s beautiful shadows.
Ball-Nogues will create a new installation for Rice Gallery in September 2006, and are looking for architecture students to help build the project.

Lecture by Benjamin Ball and Gaston Nogues
Monday, April 3 at 6:30 pm
@ Rice University, Sewall Hall 309 :: 6100 Main Street in Houston, Texas

Sounds interesting! If you’ve got the time, it’s worth attending. If you’re an architecture student, it’s DEFINITELY worth attending.
