The overall object of 25 · 35 · 55 | Wearable is to consider the whole process of design, in terms of material, fabrication and logistics to answer today’s industry challenges for architecture and product design. Through an analogue experimentation to discover material properties and by building up a material system narrative, the project considers the current innovative technologies and techniques. That is, the use of digital design and fabrication tools, as the emerging scenario that brings the industry towards the customized product and architectural design, opposed to the massive serial production of the XXth Century. Three wearable component-based systems have been designed to be fabricated in Barcelona and taken to Cardiff in a 25.35.55cm cabin suitcase by plane to be exhibited.
(*) This project has been developed within the WSA Cardiff University and the IAAC Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, and led by Carles Sala and Relja Ferusic, from SALA FERUSIC Architects.
