在名为“创造新历史”的第二届芝加哥建筑双年展中，事务所受邀与艺术家Ana Prvački合作，完成于开幕周展出的特殊项目。该项目名为“空气对空气（L’air Pour L’air）”，旨在城市空气污染日益严重的当下，保护音乐家的演出环境。
In conjunction with Making New History, the second edition of the Chicago Architecture Biennial, we collaborated with artist Ana Prvački to debut a special project during the Biennial’s opening week. Titled L’air pour l’air, the project aims to ensure the continued legacy of musicians as our cities’ atmospheres grow more polluted.

Inspired by the abundant plant life in the Garfield Park Conservatory, along with Prvački we have created an ensemble of air-filtering mesh enclosures, designed to clean the air through breathing. Part mask, part shelter.

展出时，装置由来自芝加哥小型交响乐队的音乐家们穿戴，其中包括萨克斯管，长笛，长号和人声表演者。音乐家们演奏来自作曲家Veronika Krausas的原创音乐“关于空气（De Aere）”。装置和表演都是为了鼓励观众去思考生活中一些复杂的问题，例如整洁与污染的关系，又比如自我，身体，事物及自然间的区别。

The enclosures will be worn by an ensemble of saxophone, flute, trombone, and vocals from the Chicago Sinfonietta. Through performing an original composition, De Aere (concerning the air), by composer Veronika Krausas, the musicians will “clean the air that produces the music.” The installation and performance encourage its viewers to meditate upon the complex notions such as the relationship between purity and pollution, and the distinctions between self, body, objects, and nature.
