If luck is on your side you can find out what they are thinking about - before hindsight settles in and the interesting things have become normal, and the answers to questions are all pre-digested. If the timing is right it is possible to learn a bit about what it is like to be an up-start.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/95016/upstarts-lan-architecture UpStarts: LAN Architecture katyatylevich 2010-01-07T11:04:00-05:00 >2012-12-12T19:34:51-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/v9/v96fq653zf4h9soa.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> Coordinating schedules with Benoit Jallon and Umberto Napolitano of <a href="http://lan-paris.com" target="_blank">LAN [Local Architecture Network] Architecture</a> is hard. They&rsquo;re busy. Which is just about the best adjective you can wish upon these founders of an (almost) eight-year-old practice. Well, that, and &ldquo;happy&rdquo; &mdash; specifically with the projects keeping them chained to the drawing board. Oh, but we&rsquo;ll get to the topic of architectural hedonism yet, believe me.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/93216/upstarts-mapt UpStarts: MAPT Archinect 2009-10-27T13:16:00-04:00 >2012-12-12T20:01:15-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/fr/frn892hotqhdkdav.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> MAPT, a Danish architecture practice several months shy of its fifth birthday, leaves an intricate trail of breadcrumbs behind its projects. It's not easy retracing the steps between a realized MAPT idea and its inception. The firm's works are often products of an ongoing "mad science," after all&mdash; years of lab experiments, workshops, lectures, installations, tests, and trial runs.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/92238/upstarts-ball-nogues-studio UpStarts: Ball-Nogues Studio katyatylevich 2009-09-25T14:45:00-04:00 >2012-12-12T20:30:09-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/ps/pskchal287ojhkq1.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <i>I arrive at <b>Ball-Nogues Studio</b> in downtown Los Angeles ten minutes early. <b>Benjamin Ball</b> is still on the phone with a client, which I take as a green-light to snoop around the office &mdash; a spacious room decked with suspended shapes and colorful projects-in-progress.

Art and architecture represent in the titles, of course, but no less so than, say, Constructivist theater.
