Creative Students for the future
After browsing on the ‘eventbrite’ website I came across something which really caught my eye and simply could not miss, the”2016 National Design Exhibition-Sydney” – Organized by Billy Blue College of Design
As you approach the building you are greeted by a sculpture in the center of the plaza surrounded by generous open spaces.
Entering the College, I was amazed by the excellent flow of spaces, the connection between the warm contemporary interiors, the original timber column and beam structure.
The following courses are offered: http://www.billyblue.edu.au/courses#HArfAVxLJagd1I4g.97
Looking at the designs produced and exhibited by the students, I immediately felt the connection between environment and creativity.
After requesting some information from one of the eager young volunteer students, I was ushered off to meet Nikki White who was the Marketing Executive on duty. Nikki agreed to be interviewed, a time slot to be arranged early December 2016.
In the interim, I would like take you on a tour “ a’ la’ João” through the welcome and inviting Billy Blue College of Design.
I immediately embraced the all-open look of this college, where reception/ lobby working /spaces all flow into one, a stylized blend.
The friendly personnel and excited volunteer students personified the warm environment, not to mention the inviting coffee shop.
The low-level shelving in the library maintained an open plan feel, the print-scan space was generous and was surrounded by ample space and warm inviting colours which enhance the natural concrete floor.
The design workstations and classroom areas are comfortable and spacious which can only further facilitate the creative activity.
The floor layout includes a center core and perimeter working and leisure area with a corridor all around dividing these inner and outer areas.
The fashion design working space was designed with the objective to embrace creativity, as shown in the photographs.
After being distracted by the beautiful surroundings I began to focus on the talented work exhibited by the students which were either suspended, displayed on tables or playing on numerous monitors.
