Over 1,350 people attended this year's Beaux Arts Ball at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City on Sept. 28. Hosted by the Architectural League of New York — and with Archinect/Bustler as one of the media sponsors — the annual evening event brought together the architecture and design community for a centennial celebration of the infamous 1913 "Armory Show" — when European modern art was introduced into the U.S. The sold-out Ball also helps support other Arch.

Here's what Aaron Plewke shared with Bustler on the event:
"The overall environmental effect created for this year's ball was quite successful. The white tarp-like canopies created an intimate space at the center of the dark and voluminous armory hall. The sound installation built from a dream-like drone steadily toward a beat-heavy dance party. Large Mylar puppets marched rhythmically through the space, adding spectacle, and pushing vertically into the dark void above."
