Resilient Skin-code, Architectural Association Visiting School Milan
Text description provided by architects. Resilient SKIN-code School will aim to explore new relationships and links between different disciplines, specifically between Architecture and Fashion design. The research focuses on the ergonomic scale, therefore we will look at Architecture in the form of a small scale structure, such a pavilion, and Fashion in the form of a wearable construct and both will be explored, in the eyes of sustainable criteria, to build a prototype which will lie somewhere between a shelter and a garment.
During the last two decades, both disciplines have been drawing influences from each other, in terms of form-finding processes, digital techniques, digital fabrication processes, material organization and more. These industries are in constant transformation and advancement; hence their relationships are in constant flux and relentless new formation.
In this workshop, students were invited to research this new formation by working collaboratively to construct a 3d manifestation of this new link, as a form of meaningful interventions.
Such interventions suggest an efficient way of installation and dismantling, exploring sustainable ideas aligning with environmental considerations, which are in the heart of current global concerns. Students were exposed to new advanced computational skills, fabrication tools, form-finding, material manipulation, and current theoretical thinking, guided by professionals from the academic world and practitioners from both disciplines.
