26. WILLIAM QUINTANA + CHRISTA TRAUTMAN
Here is an opportunity to return to a child's world of wonder. Imagine opening a door only to encounter a totally new experience; something that is not what you expect when you leave the familiarity of the school hallway. A set of six telescoping, brightly colored boxes replace the traditional four walls. The bright hues are meant to entice users to explore the space further and immerse themselves in the unknown well of color.
