Fashion meets architecture – how do we claim space in the city?

Fashion and architecture help us to relate to our surroundings and our natural environment – the city – while creating conditions for establishing an identity, community belonging and activity.

Traditionally, the focus has been on offering protection from the elements and providing comfort, but also on manifesting status and shared cultural values. It has been a means to strengthen boundaries, territories and standards, as well as challenging prevailing patterns and creating new social structures.

Both fashion and architecture share the need to work with traditional tools such as function, structure, material, surface and form.

How do the two disciplines treat innovation, needs, necessity and relevance? How do they view accessibility and exclusivity? Where do they find their creativity and inspiration? How do they shape their creative processes? How do they relate to pressing subjects, such as sustainability, democracy, integration and equality? Are the disciplines interested in basing their practice on authenticity, context and global culture? How do they approach production challenges?

In short – what roles do these professions take today?
