Beaux Arts Ball 2016 Photo Gallery

Photographs from Beaux Arts Ball 2016: Tabula Rasa

On Friday, September 30, 2016, The Architectural League held its annual Beaux Arts Ball at A/D/O, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The year’s theme, Tabula Rasa, celebrated the creative act of fresh thinking and innovation and New York’s own ceaseless reinvention.

Chef Fredrik Berselius of the restaurant Aska created a menu of light fare, Ultramoderne designed a site-specific installation, and Wild Dogs International developed projection-mapped architectural abstractions displayed throughout the space.

The Ball was the first event held at A/D/O, a rare inside look at the raw and in-progress 23,000 square-foot space designed by Brooklyn-based nARCHITECTS.

Below are photos from the Ball, as well as from the annual Benefactors Dinner, which was held the same evening at ABC Worldwide Stone, a provider of natural stone to the design community. To jump to the Benefactors Dinner, click here.
