laboratory for visionary fashion (LAVIF)

The project describes the architecture’s role in the formation of a Brazilian visionary fashion identity through exploring fashion and architecture. In a complex matrix of experience and information, each interior space questions the relationship between fabric (fashion) and building (architecture) and works as a thread from which they must gather and weave together all the strings relevant to this project.
There is a significant relationship of promoting fashion exhibition, retail and education through the architectural manipulation of the environment. During the conceptual development, I was lead to an investigation of beauty and how it can be translated in each discipline analyzed. The existing structure was adjusted to receive the new design while scale, textures, and colors of the elements applied were magnified when light intensity was added performing incredible effects, impacting the final result.
