该项目位于美国加州大学洛杉矶分校内,由Ball-Nogues事务所设计,由数百个咖啡的样式桌子和三脚的凳子构成。桌子和凳子联系在一起共同形成一个“结构”,从庭院的东墙上挂起,一直延>伸到地面,展开后,形成一个表演区。

以下是设计事务所提供的项目简介:

Table Cloth was a performance space in the courtyard of Schoenberg Hall at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music in Los Angeles. Ball-Nogues Studio designed and fabricated the installation. The project was a result of ongoing research into the reuse of temporary structures and installations.

A collaboration between the UCLA Department of Architecture and Urban Design, the Herb Alpert School of Music, and the UCLA Design Media Arts; Table Cloth served as an integrated set piece, backdrop, and seating area for student musical performance and everyday social interaction.  It was made of hundreds of individual low, coffee-style tables and three legged stools.  Each of these household items is a unique product (no two are alike), fabricated specifically for the installation by Ball Nogues. The public took home the tables and stools after the run of the installation. The tables and stools linked together collectively to form a “fabric” that hung from the east wall of the courtyard. Where Table Cloth met the ground, it unrolled to form an intimate “in the round” performance area. Visitors could sit on the tables and stools within this area.

“Tables are places for social interaction,” explained Ball-Nogues. “Dining tables, specifically, facilitate organization and communication within the typical American home. We see this project like the cloth adorning a dining table; however, at Schoenberg it will adorn the courtyard, an important social hub, and will facilitate community at the scale of the University.”

Used for a variety of activities, from musical practice to performance, dance to lecture, and from casual conversation to academic discussion; it embellished the courtyard throughout the summer of 2010. Because of the work’s size and the materials used, its presence within the space helped to reduce reverberation and alter other acoustical phenomena.

The processes of designing manufacturing, assembling, and dismantling the performance space are examples of a unique design and manufacturing methodology that moves beyond and constructively critiques the three “R’s” of sustainability – recycling, reuse, and repurposing; processes that typically down-cycle material into less valuable states. After the structure served its function as a performance space, the components comprising the installation were dismantled to become smaller scaled household commodities, – tables and seating. This process, referred to as “Cross Manufacturing” by Ball-Nogues, is an integrated design and manufacturing strategy that harnesses digital computation and fabrication technologies to make architectural scaled installations that become collections of smaller scaled products. The items were immediately available and given away as consumer goods, once the installation was dismantled. This approach moves beyond recycling and reuse.

By using a consumer good as its basic building block, the project expands and critiques notions of “green” architecture. As a visual concept, the installation serves as a symbolic gesture of sustainability and a poetic reminder that the buildings and temporary pavilions we construct are impermanent: frozen moments in an ongoing flow of products and materials. Outside of its environmental considerations, the Table Cloth dramatically re-contextualizes consumer products – symbols of mass consumption and standardization– into alternative gestures of hope and one of a kind manufacturing.

Table Cloth was the site of performances hosted by the Herb Alpert School of Music through the summer of 2010. Please see the Herb Alpert School of Music Website to confirm dates and start times.
