Reading between the lines

I really love the way fashion designer Serkan Cura designed and made this lovely structure around the body.

Now, the question is, in how many different ways could the Fashion Designer shape human’s body? This “dress” is a piece of art, a sculpture, but would I wear it? would you wear it? How comfortable is it? After all maybe it was just to show the designer’s line of thought!

There is a similar building which reminds me of this dress. ‘Reading between the lines’ church is by Belgium Architects, Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh located in Limburg, Belgium. It is 10 meters tall and made by 100 stacked layers of weathered steal.

With gaps between the steel plates, sunlight streams straight through and out of the church. It appears to dissolve into the landscape.

Do you see similarities as well? Did the Fashion designer and the Architects knew each other? What was their inspiration? What was their design concept? What was their design process?

 

I it really interesting how sometimes you can find Fashion in Architecture and Architecture in Fashion. I would like to call it Fashionecture.
