Pulp Pavilion

Since 1999, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has drawn the rich and the famous to the Southern California desert for a six-day party packed with stunning installations that give the live bands a run for their money. For Los Angeles design firm Ball-Nogues Studio, the event was ideal for debuting a building material it had been developing for years: recycled-paper pulp.
