Beaux Arts Ball 2015 Photo Gallery

Photographs from Beaux Arts Ball 2015: Threshold

The Knockdown Center, Maspeth, Queens

On Friday, September 18, 2015, The Architectural League held its annual Beaux Arts Ball at the Knockdown Center, a former doorframe factory turned artist/performance space in Queens. This year’s theme, Threshold, celebrates the building’s specific industrial history, while nodding to the Ball as a kick-off to the cultural year, not only for The Architectural League, but for the entire New York design community.

Inside the restored factory’s 50,000 square foot, 40-foot high spaces, the design teams of Alibi Studio, MODU, and Moorhead & Moorhead created site-specific “threshold” installations.

Below are photos from the Ball, as well as from the annual Benefactors Dinner, which was held the same evening. To jump to the Benefactors Dinner, click here.
