The West Bank is characterised by the hilly landscape defining the skyline.

The museum will be built in phases and the smaller unit approach allows the museum to grow over time as the program matures.

The basic structure – a four-armed star plan – is cast in concrete around an intermediate massive core built from bales of straw.

Feathered Edge in Los Angeles, California by Ball-Nogues Studio

Feathered Edgewas commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. The project explores the convergence of digital technology and craft. It is one in a series of installations curated by Brooke Hodge and Alma Ruiz. Integrating complex digital computation, mechanization, and printing with traditional handcrafted production techniques, Feathered Edge explores our desire to alter a space with fluid architectural forms that require a minimal use of material while utilizing a new proprietary technique that yields the effect of three dimensional spatial constructs “printed” to resemble objects hovering in space.
