Architecture has always been incomplete. Reliant on and completed by multiple subjects, perceptions and associations, it is time to expand what is integral to architecture. No More Room leverages the contemporary relationship between the rooms we inhabit and the images we consume to produce a sense of being in multiple spaces at once, a type of quantum superposition in architectural terms. It is a layered construction of volumetric relationships centered around a designed core sample. Geologic in nature, it represents a partial architecture embedded with information from many points of origin and melds their traits to find completeness in the round. It asks backgrounds and middle grounds to foreground spatial experiences. No More Room makes room for architecture as the territory between things.
No More Room is a project from BairBalliet, a joint design venture between Kelly Bair and Kristy Balliet based in Los Angeles and Chicago. No More Room was exhibited in the SCI-Arc Gallery in 2021. BairBalliet is invested in architectural research in the form of both speculative and built projects.
BairBalliet's work has been exhibited internationally at the Venice Architecture Biennale (Venice, Italy), the Frac Centre (Orleans, France) and Centre de design de l’UQAM (Montreal). Their work has been exhibited across the United States at Modern Museum of Art MoMA (New York), The Architecture & Design Museum & the SCI-Arc Gallery (Los Angeles), Museum of Contemporary Art (Detroit), Chicago Cultural Center (Chicago) and Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburgh) among others. In 2018, they were named a finalist for the 2018 MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program.
