We Will Miss You, David Slovic.

Slovic speaks at Circadian Rhythm

One of Philadelphia’s renowned architects and a beloved InLiquid artist passed earlier this week. David Slovic, 77, was a  leading 2nd wave post-modernist who had an impeccable sense of abstraction combined with whimsical design, patterns and light.

Slovic designed the Old Pine Community Center, as well as the Moravian Food Court on 3401 Walnut St.

He and his wife also designed the striking Latimer House, once known as the most expensive home in Philly.  The home encompasses Slovic’s command of pattern and light.

Mr. Slovic also enjoyed the fine arts and photography, exhibiting at noteworthy locations such as the Venice Biennale, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Yale, and the Delaware Contemporary.

 

 

“My work explores the nature of abstraction, a process that moves freely between the real, the imaginary and the symbolic engaging both the intellect and emotions. In each media, the work is ‘in motion’…The whole orders the plurality of the pieces.”

“…about light, form, order, time, chaos, chance, movement, random systems, systematic randomness, about process, parts of a whole, about wholes made of parts, about imbuing material with spirit, understandings and essential assumptions.” —David Slovic
