3/2014 art / fashion

Fashionable often implies shallowness – at least in architecture. However, cultural editor Jonni Roos disagrees. He sees the relationship between fashion and architecture as presenting a fruitful landscape full of potential. The issue highlights the interrelations between fashion, art and architecture. The journey between the arts begins with the play “Prisoner by choice” written by the acclaimed architect Antti Nousjoki, in which historical facts form the starting point for a story about buildings, books and destinies. The review features four completely different projects: a Parisian fashion house, a library in Savo, Eastern Finland, the home of an actor family and a station building in tribute to metro traffic.
