New, 2 comments

Rap sensation Pharrell Williams, he who designs crazy chairs with human-leg legs, is bringing his talents to the architecture sphere in a new youth center where kids can explore music, art, and more. He has partnered with Miami-based modernist architect Chad Oppenheim, whom he describes as "a guy who turns real life ideas and situations into buildings." (Quite a compliment!) "I want it to be a safe haven for children and a place that challenges them, encouraging them to be curious," Williams told Wallpaper* about the design of the Pharrell Williams Youth Center, which is expected to break ground this year in his hometown of Virginia Beach.
