Balmond Studio has been exploring educational ideas through art installations as part of a series of research studies. 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.
