Spring 2013

ROOMS OF THEIR OWN: HUMANS AND THE SECOND SKIN
A series of lectures + films on intersections of fashion and architecture

Fashion, like architecture, is on the front lines of a border ecology between inside and outside. The buildings we live inside and clothing we wear share being made out of a necessity for protection and identity expression as well as a persistent and creative desire to push beyond function. Both membranes are places of conflict and dialogue-- fashion, at once a surface both coded and interpreted, is dictated by history and reevaluated by the weathering of change, dotted with two-sided windows, expressive, essential, and uniquely human.

Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami (director), 52 min.

garmITECTURE
Thursday, February 14, 6.00 p.m.
