The Fashion of Architecture : Constructing the Architecture of Fashion

The Fashion of Architecture : Constructing the Architecture of Fashion

[New York], January 7, 2005 - Architecture is making its presence felt in fashion as the pliable metals, membrane structures, lightweight glasses and flexible plastics used in building construction are creeping on to the catwalks.

At the same time, architects and interior designers are borrowing the techniques of pleating and draping from traditional tailoring to design buildings that are interactive, inflatable, and even portable.

The exhibition features projects from architects such as David Adjaye, Shigeru Ban, Winka Dubbeldam, Zaha Hadid, Kivi Sotamaa, Lars Spuybroek, and Meejin Yoon while showcasing architectonic apparel from fashion mavericks such as Hussein Chalayan, Yoshiki Hishinuma, Kei Kegami, Michiko Koshino, Nicola de Main, Martin Margiela, Pia Myrvold, Yeohlee Teng, and Simon Thorogood.

Special work from Lucy Orta pioneers new potentials for interior environments and outdoor structures as she makes poetic comments on urban life.

From January 11 to March 11, the Center for Architecture in New York will present new work from leading architects and fashion designers such as Hussein Chalayan, Shigeru Ban, Norwegian Pia Myrvold and Zaha Hadid.

Visitors will be able to experience first hand the remarkable connections between these two fields.

More importantly, this exhibition offers the first in-depth analysis of how these unique disciplines influence and interact with each other. The Fashion of Architecture investigates the dialogue between modern architecture and contemporary fashion in considerable depth.

Architects and interior designers are borrowing techniques such as pleating and draping from traditional tailoring, and the structures that result are interactive, inflatable, and even portable.

Devices such as the spiral and the fold are frequently used by practitioners in both disciplines, forming the structural basis for forms ranging from buildings and bridges to ball gowns and bikinis.

Norwegian fashion designer and multi-media artist Pia Myrvold made a response to Winka Dubbeldam's Hardware/Softform ' project in a recent fashion installation, designing garments based on Winka Dubbeldam's principle of a flexible armature and interpreting graphic elements from HardWare/SoftForm as surface motifs in her garments.
