Concrete Architectural Associates – De Lairesse Apotheek In this project concrete took the clientʼs statement ʻitʼs all right to change everything; all I need is a chest of drawersʼ as a starting point. After all, the only way to organise a pharmacy is by means of drawers to store medications. In addition to conventional medicine, De Lairesse Pharmacy has one of the largest offers of alternative medication in the Netherlands. Within the pharmacy, customers are surrounded by drawers filled with both synthetic and natural medicine. This generates confidence and a sense of mental and physical well-being. As a literal translation of the clientʼs vision, the interior of the pharmacy uses a clear mix of materials.
Visser & Aleksandra Gaca – Hybrids + Fusion Futuristic interior textiles – a high tech fabric design.
Okra – IJsselkade, Doesburg
Marijke van der wijst – Exhibition J.J.P. Oud – Philip Johnson a dialogue Philip Johnson (1906), a friend and admirer of Oud, has designed an homage to Oud. His installation forms a bridge between two worlds: Europe and America, the 1920s, and the present. Johnson’s design was the basis for the Oud retrospective in the NAi, designed by Marijke van der Wijst.
