This year the 69th Regiment Armory housed more than a thousand guests and a handful of large puppets for a night of festivities and performance at The Architectural League’s annual Beaux Arts Ball.

We spent 48 hours transforming the Armory’s Drill Hall into a landscape of etherealĀ floating lightweight structures hovering above the floor, spent a night of dancing underneath underneath a live feed projection mapping, sound installations and lighting design, and finally spent a Sunday uninstalling.

We just finished a video that documents the process from rigging to final party. Watch below
