ARCAM, Ontfront (Liza Koifman & Tomas Overtoom) and V2A architectuur & stedebouw (Wouter Valkenier) have challenged four duos – each comprising a fashion designer and an architect who have teamed up specially for the occasion – to enter into a design process. The results were on show at ARCAM in the summer of 2010.
The teams consist of:
Iris van Herpen & Jan Benthem / Mels Crouwel (Benthem Crouwel Architekten)
Mattijs van Bergen (MATTIJS) & Anouk Vogel (Anouk Vogel landscape architecture)
Farida Sedoc (Hosselaer) & Nicole / Marc Maurer (Maurer United Architects)
Kentroy Yearwood (Intoxica) & Jeroen Bergsma (2012Architecten)
Although there are frequent crossovers between fashion and architecture and other disciplines, the collaboration between fashion designers and architects is still at an early stage. Which is surprising considering they have so much common ground.
Mutually inspired, the designers cut through the dogmas of their own discipline, make a design statement and allowed the visitor an insight into the creative process.
Monday evening September 13, ARCAM organizes a finissage of the exhibition.
