With digital fabrication becoming so prevalent within the design and architectural realm we are seeing more and more students bridging the gap between design disciplines. Fashion and architecture have always danced the line into each other as architecture creates space, but fashion inhabits space. Niccolo Casas students crossed the boundaries of traditional design and explored the relationship between the body and a 3D artifact. Coco Channel said it best as “fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.” Check it out after the jump!
STUDENT: Federica Sangiorgi, Lorena D’Alfonso,
Carlotta Bandiera, Ella Saidi, Elena Setnikar
SCHOOL: Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna
PROFESSOR: Niccolò Casas
COURSE: Digital Modeling Techniques
“The course of Tecniche di Modellazione Digitale at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna leads students through the basis of Digital and Parametric Design. The course is part of the School of Product Design at the Accademia, a school highly interested in crossing boundaries of traditional design searching for the convergence of multidisciplinary approaches.
In 2011 students focused on the new interdisciplinary discipline emerging at the intersection of Design, Fashion Design and Architecture thanks to the work of Iris Van Herpen and the research of Isaïe Bloch and Daniel Widrig.
Drawearing attempts to investigate possibilities and potentialities of advanced digital design techniques in the realm of fashion design.
Students worked on the relation between body and three dimensional artifact, between complexity and recognition, deepening the potentialities of digital sketching, 3d drawing and Morphodynamic techniques.”
