Within the scope of the workshop Performative Geometries, students at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki developed individual spatial designxstrategies by analyzing textile techniques and their underlying geometrical spatial appearance. As in architecture, fashion creates a second skin that can adapt to the human body depending on its programming the skin changes. In terms of spatial organization, we can learn many things from techniques that are used by fashion designers. In the Performative Geometries workshops, each group analyzed a specific piece of clothes in terms of geometry, technique, cutting pattern and material.
The book contains many visuals of the form studies in between fashion, textiles, space and architecture, thus combining and blurring the moving and the static, and essays by leaders in the field.
Asterios Agkathidis also published Modular Structures in Design and Architecture, Digital Manufacturing and Computational Architecture with BIS Publishers. Gabi Schillig teaches at the Institute for Transmedia Design at Berlin University of the Arts. One of the essays in the book is written by Sofia Vyzovity, author of the international bestsellers Folding Architecture and Supersurfaces, which are also published by BIS.
