Fashion Vs. Architecture: Construct / Deconstruct

The above spreads are from a big feature in PILOT issue 2. It was printed on insert matte stock and printed in a two-colour monotone. It looks much better in the flesh actually, but these lo-res give you a quick feel for the feature, as does the text below…

Recent advances in technology have given architects the tools to create fluid buildings and fashion designers the ability to make garments architectonic. The language of each discipline is increasingly interchangeable as architects incorporate pleating, folding, and weaving into their structural designs while fashion designers use architectural inspiration to express volume and structure. Construct / Deconstruct explores the relationship between fashion and architecture highlighting common ground and suggesting potential new ideas for the future development of both disciplines.
