Laura Mast’s wearable fabric structures


This project is by Laura Mast, an architecture student at IIT. This studio project looked at inflatable, wearable fabric structures to both costume and house a dance performance. Beautiful work like this, and here I don’t mean beautiful in solely an aesthetic sense, but rather in terms of the beauty of its ideas and process, is so humbling and inspiring.

Interesting elements: 1) the piece transforms, through inflation, from a costume piece to a wearable structure to a set piece once it’s taken off. 2) the use of grasshopper/rhino to investigate the parametric potential of the wing structures.
