ABOUT

 

We are designers, artists, musicians, and fabricators exploring new methods of presentations of the performing arts.

Working closely with local communities, we design and supply prefabricated venue structures.

Founder

Alban Bassuet is an internationally recognized venue and installation designer, planner and acoustician. He has designed the acoustics of some of the most innovative venues in the world such as the new Greek National Opera House, Le Rosey Concert Hall in Switzerland or the Recital Hall at the Tippet Rise Art Center. Recognized for pushing the boundaries of representation of the arts, he has collaborated on installation projects with artists such as James Turrell, Ensamble Studio, Ai Wei Wei, Philip Glass, Mark di Suvero, Patrick Dougherty, and Stephen Vitiello. Alban's work also finds inspiration in his earlier research work at IRCAM and from his academically recognized research study of historical European music spaces for the Constellation Project. In 2014, Alban was the director of the Tippet Rise Art Center, recognized by Time Magazine as "One of the 100th world greatest places to visit", where he led the creation of new experiences of music and art in  contact with Nature, which he carries as inspiration for the creation of new venue structure concepts.
