  • Hidden Orchestra
    london UNITED KINGDOM

    critics: SIr Peter COOK & Ricardo de OSTOS

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Alice LABOUREL: The Ballet School project is an attempt to render subjective experience as objective reality. It recreates so-called actual / physical reality out of perceived reality—that is, to build the real from one’s experience. Architecture allows users to interact with, react to, and be stimulated by the spaces they inhabit. In addition, this architecture allows inhabitants to construct their own realities by filling in the gaps, like a child using his/her imagination.

  • Norman Kelley
    chicago ILLINOIS

    As children, we make things for ourselves: houses from cardboard boxes, tents from blankets, even paper wings to fly from the dining room table. As adults, we make less things. And while we grown-ups labor through subtext and buried complexity, children are quick to invent it; always toying with absurdity in the hopes of finding novelty. . . .
