No Ball Games — As part of Open House London, together with British artist FXXX BXXXXX, we proposed an intervention in the Argentine Ambassador’s Residence, central to both Argentinian and British identities. Bringing a typically outdoor activity into a fragile indoor space, our proposal consisted of the installation of an especially designed football pitch in the ballroom. We understood the football pitch as a social space for interaction and participation. The room became a space, in which visitors to the house met in a spirit of celebration.
