Abstract [en]

Wearing Architecture is my search of the real potential in combining architecture with clothing design. In a world where our mobility is constantly increasing, this spatial investigation looks for ways to carry your personal space with you, on you. The project consists of making and analyzing 13 full-scale prototypes, to test spatiality applied on clothes. The main themes of research have been wearable structures for space and collective clothing.

 

The project started as a personal challenge. Two fields of great interest, architecture and clothing design, both serving as cover for the human body on different scales and with different properties. What potential lies in the combining of the two fields? Could there be more than superficially talking about clothes as “architectural”? How could one work along that border?

 

My method of research has been continuously making simple prototypes in full-scale, where I’ve been able to quickly test different approaches to the subject of investigation. The method has been good in immediately trying out ideas, but the process also gave insights to take with me in my future as an architect.

Abstract [sv]

Wearing Architecture är min jakt på potentialen i att kombinera arkitektur med kläddesign. I en värld där vår rörlighet ständigt ökar letar denna undersökning efter sätt att bära med sig sitt personliga rum. Projektet gick ut på att göra och analysera 13 fullskaliga prototyper, för att testa rumsligheter applicera på klädesplagg. De huvudsakliga temana var bärbara strukturer för rumsligheter och kollektivt bärande.

 

Projektet började som en personlig utmaning. Två områden av stort intresse, arkitektur och kläddesign, båda skydd för den mänskliga kroppen på olika skalor och med olika egenskaper. Vilka möjligheter kan finnas i att kombinera de två fälten? Kan där finnas mer än att ytligt tala om kläder som ”arkitektoniska”? Hur skulle man kunna arbeta längs gränsen?

 

Skapandes enkla prototyper i skala 1:1 har jag snabbt kunnat testa olika angreppssätt, men arbetssättet har också gett insikter som jag kan ta vidare i mitt arbete som arkitekt.
