Course Detail

Term Fall 2017
Class ARCH 509
Class Title Sartorial Architecture
Description Sartorial Architecture is a theory and material investigation course that examines the allied disciplines of architecture and clothing production. Clothing and architecture have long shared many affinities ranging from manufacturing processes to their impact upon all manner of social and cultural formations through design. Sartorial Architecture situates architecture and clothing production through new forms of technological experimentation. The creative loci lie in not only conflating processes but also exploring how new models of making could inform cutting-edge production with novel experiences. Through readings, lectures, and discussions, weekly topics will explore specific techniques of making coupled with exercises of material exploration. This includes tailoring, patterning and developable surfaces, macramé, folding, pleating, stitching, knitting, steaming, and casting.
