The first comprehensive examination of the many overlaps and visual and intellectual principles that unite fashion and architecture. In recent years, the boundaries between architecture and fashion have become increasingly blurred, and this beautifully illustrated new book explores the intersections and concepts that underlie the two disciplines. Both architecture and fashion are based on the human body and on ideas of space, volume, and movement. Each functions as shelter or wrapping for the bodya mediating layer between the body and the environmentand can express personal, political, and cultural identity. Fashion designers and architects share much of the same vocabulary and similar techniques of construction: pinning, darting, folding, wrapping, draping.
Skin + Bones: Parallel Practices in Fashion and Architecture, by Brooke Hodge
Both garments and buildings protect and shelter the body while providing a means to express identity. While the earliest examples of clothing and buildings were not designed but rather devised out of necessity, contemporary practitioners in both fields have continued to address the human imperative for shelter in ingenious ways. The first garment is a simple unornamented dress woven from coarse fibers upon which the designers added the other garments until, at the end of the show, the model was enclosed almost hidden inside an enveloping cloak, similar to the way the smallest Russian doll is nested in her bigger sisters bodies. Architect Shigeru Ban addressed the necessity of shelter in his Curtain Wall House Tokyo, , which plays on the idea of glass curtain-wall construction by featuring an enormous fabric curtain as the exterior surface of the building to provide the residents with shelter and privacy. More recently, Ban made use of inexpensive paper tubes to create both high-end architecture and temporary housing. His Paper Emergency Shelters consist of easily assembled paper-tube structures covered with the blankets issued to Rwandan refugees by the United Nations. The transformation of furniture into dresses, carrying cases, and a skirt suggests the necessity of leaving one s home in a hurry with nothing but the clothes on one s back.
The exhibition would have benefited from a more sustained examination of the contemporary meanings and historic meanings behind fashion ideas and architecture as a communication vehicles, which reflect public preferences as an art or design. Both are based on structure, shape, and th ornament basic necessities. The overall aim of this research is to understand both fashion and architecture by analyzing exhibition and interpreting the meaning of objects that have been shown and studying the problems and obstacles to be overcome in presenting a significant meaning of fashion and architecture.
