Second Skin: Architecture and the Body
Architecture and fashion have been long recognised as kissing cousins; building stories through the weaving of space, the warping of proportions, and the bending of perspectives. As a pre-curser to Melbourne International Fashion Week, March Process looks to those who look at wearing space. How can the manufacture of materials imbed the stories of our culture? How do we distort our own architectures with the tool of our second skin – our clothes?
The Royal Australian Institute of Architects invite emerging architects to address new concepts and practical issues in contemporary architecture on the first Monday of each month. Recent presenters include Anthony Fryatt, FMD, Threefold, Nest, Splinter Society, one2one and Beatriz Maturana, Judd Lysenko Marshall, Roudavski Jahn Johntson Lister – Elsewhere, Adele Winteridge – Foolscap Studio, M.Brady-Ward & S. Woodard – WOWOWA. Always free. All welcome. Join Process on Facebook to keep informed on monthly topics.
