No ball games

No ball games is an installation which transforms a highly formal environment into a miniature, fully enclosed football pitch. Allowing visitors to shrug off the constraining etiquette of intimidating surroundings, the metal structure ensures no damage is done to the host space, even when the ball is booted into the goals and walls at full power.

Conceived, designed and built by FXXX BXXXXX and Argentine architect Federico Ortiz, No ball games was originally commissioned for the Argentine Ambassador’s Residence as part of Open House London 2016. After receiving over 3,000 visitors in a weekend, the ball had taken a good battering but none of the antique chandeliers or priceless paintings had suffered a scratch.
