Beaux Arts Ball 2014: Craft

On September 20, 2014, The Architectural League held its annual Beaux Arts Ball at the Weylin B. Seymour’s event venue in Willliamsburg. Craft, the theme of this year’s Beaux Arts Ball, celebrates the importance of artisanship and the concert of allied disciplines in creating great works of architecture.

The building’s interiors served as inspiration for eight architects and designers, who with Nuit Blanche New York projected digital interpretations of its motifs and details, celebrating the craft and art of architecture. Installations were designed by 2×4The Bittertang Farm, CASE, INABA, Jenny Sabin Studio, LAB at Rockwell Group, Norman Kelley, and PellOverton Architects.

Below are photos from the Ball as well as from the Benefactor’s Dinner which preceded it. To jump to the Benefactors Dinner, click here.
