Panta Rhei College Interiors by i29

p p p p ' In the design for the new accommodations of public school Panta Rhei in Amstelveen (NL) there is a lot of attention on the balance between freedom and a sense of security. Snelder Architecten realised a building with many open multifunctional spaces where students can make themselves familiar with the teaching material. The interior design by i29 links up with that perfectly and gives the spaces an identity that connects with the students' environment and addresses them directly and personally. i29 let itself be inspired by the name of the school. Panta Rhei, meaning 'everything flows', 'everything is in motion'. This led to a design that leaves space for the imagination of the users, offering elements that can be used flexibly, which also propagates the school's identity. ' (via Arch Daily) p

Julie Levesque

p p Through sculpture and installation, Julie Levesque has been building a body of work that is primarily concerned with motion and the fluid transformation of energy into inanimate objects. The imprint of this emotion distorts their shapes creating a narrative of the essence of the people who have had contact with them. Slumped, eroded or enlarged, emotion/energy is made visible in ways that never physically show in the body but reside there nonetheless. Working almost exclusively in white, she creates tension and contradiction by draining the color out of these energized objects. p p p
