F(AA)Shions: temporary actualizations

Valentina Sumini

F(AA)SHIONS/ AA Visiting School Paris, Spring 2011
The Architectural Association School of Architecture | Musées des Arts Décoratifs Paris

The objective was the exploration of novel productions in fashion and architecture. Fashion scene today has become an ensemble of socio-morphological forces connecting people, catalyzing experimental open design. Fashion per se, with its affinity for transformation, sets a terrain of becomings, architectural identities, scenery and performance.
On the edge of technological couture transformation, F(AA)SHIONSrapid prototyped concepts that stage sharp, raw, urban, experimental and unsentimental spatial/apparel logics.

AA Paris School fostered  integral dynamic qualities opening to surprising typologies intrinsic to temporal bodies, fluid matter(s), and singular proportions, morphed together onto large organic systems.

The workshop took place from the 21st to 31st March 2011 and will be hosted by Musées des Arts Décoratifs -a Parisian internationally prominent contemporary art hub- 111 Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris.
