Casper College Wyoming Installation

The interactive art proposal, which will be installed in Casper College, a school in Wyoming, USA, transforms the forgotten spaces of hallways, corridors and lobbies into thriving community and learning zones, celebrating the students’ daily experience. The designs are based on advanced geometric thinking developed by Cecil Balmond, founder of Balmond Studio.

“It gives visual life to the building, students will have the opportunity to learn from (Balmond’s) work,” says Linda Ryan, art instructor and chair of the project committee at Casper College. The studio is also investigating hospitals and looking at new ways of working with energy as part of its agenda.

Cecil Balmond set up Balmond Studio in 2010. The practice is currently involved with a mixed-use masterplan in Asia, a €120m viaduct competition for Milan’s Expo 2015, and a ground-breaking prototype for a new kind of modular housing unit. Balmond’s current projects include ArcelorMittal Orbit, designed with Anish Kapoor for London’s 2012; H_edge, a travelling fractal art installation; and a light sculpture for a public government building in Alaska. Balmond has also been shortlisted as one of three designers to create a landmark at the English-Scottish border.

Balmond’s work has been exhibited at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark (2007); Artists Space in New York (2006); Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts in Chicago (2008-2009); Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh (2009-2010) and Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery (2010).

His designs include the Battersea Power station masterplan (2003); a cultural centre in the middle east; Weave, a bridge for the University of Pennsylvania (2009) and the Pedro e Ines footbridge in Coimbra (2006). Balmond has won many prizes including the RIBA Charles Jencks Prize awarded for Theory In Practice.
