Ball-Nogues reimagine fun

Echo Park architects Gaston Nogues and Benjamin Ball have won the Young Architects Program competition, which the New York Times describes as an important stepping stone. For their trouble the pair now get to realize their design for an "outdoor daytime nightclub" on the playground at PS 1 in Queens. According to the NYTimes, ""drench buckets suspended in the air will periodically dump water on patrons below." Sounds like fun, assuming its summer time. Speaking of which, the living will be hard, as Ball and Nogues told their reporter that they plan to live in a tent in the PS 1 courtyard. Fortunately for them, part of the installation will be built in Echo Park.
