Master of Architecture (MArch)
Fashion and architecture are the results of configuring surfaces. The surface of architecture is distanced and objective. The surface of fashion is tangible and sensible.
Dressing of an individual provides a definition of private space. Dressing of a group of people provides a definition of communal space.
My thesis interest is to explore the ambiguity between these two disciplines to create the intermedium layer of clothing surface and the building surface. The aim to explore different gradients of privacy between the private and the public, disconnections and reconnections, intimacy and distance to find a way in which they can all coexist.
The goal of my thesis is not to arrive to a solution, but to provoke, question and inquire through the process of prototyping.
By designing the prototypes to blur disciplinary boundaries between fashion and architecture. The blurry boundary is where I see the ambiguity, the matter between true and not true, between neither or both.
