Once deconstructed, the components will be re-assembled as individual pieces of furniture and redistributed.

UCLA Architecture and Urban Design unveils innovative ‘Table Cloth’ installation
The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music has a new performance space in the courtyard of the Schoenberg Music Building on campus. “Table Cloth,” a collaboration between faculty and students, is an innovative and experiential set piece that will serve as a backdrop for the performing arts and everyday social interaction.
The concept for the site emerged from a collaborative process between the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, UCLA Architecture and Urban Design (AUD) and the UCLA Department of Design | Media Arts. AUD lecturer Benjamin Ball and collaborating partner Gaston Nogues, of the Los Angeles–based Ball-Nogues Studio, completed “Table Cloth” after leading AUD graduate students in a class in which they explored different design ideas for the Schoenberg site.
“Table Cloth” is comprised of hundreds of individual low, coffee-style tables and three-legged stools. The tables and stools link together collectively to create a “fabric” that hangs from the east wall of the courtyard. When it meets the ground, “Table Cloth” unrolls to form an intimate in-the-round performance area. The audience can sit on the tables and stools within this area.
“Tables are places for social interaction,” Ball said. “Dining tables, specifically, facilitate organization and communication within the typical American home. We see this project like the cloth adorning a dining table; however, at Schoenberg, it will adorn the courtyard, an important social hub, and will facilitate community at the scale of the university.”
The space will host a variety of community-oriented activities, from musical practice to performance, dance to lectures, and social interaction to academic discussions. Because of the work’s size and the materials used, its presence will reduce reverberation and alter other acoustical phenomena within the space. “Table Cloth” will embellish the courtyard during the 2010 spring and summer quarters.
Funding for the project was made possible by grants from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts and the UCLA Arts Initiative. Structural engineering was provided by Buro Happold, Los Angeles (Matthew Melnyk, lead engineer).
