The Omotesando Street Fashion Museum Makes a Style Statement

There are plenty of parallels to be drawn between fashion and architecture, and all proof is epitomized in the Omotesando Street Fashion Museum. The project was a competition entry to house a gallery of 20th century style that would succeed to become a major monument within the city of Tokyo, Japan.

Not surprisingly, this compelling concept won designers Nairi Abramian, Narine Gyulkhasyan and Anahit Hayrapetyan first prize for this landmark proposal that embodies great attention to the building envelope in a way that speaks to garments. Essentially increasing the scale generously, the team clad this anthropomorphic tower in a "woven gown" of fibers that act as solar tubes to aid the structure's eco efficiency.

The Omotesando Street Fashion Museum includes a continuous promenade through historical styles, and most notably incorporates 35 meter-long daring outdoor cantilevered catwalks. Stats for Fibrous Skyscraping Galleries Trending: Older & Mild
