Are Issey Miyake’s pleats, the Inspiration Sources of Zaha Hadid ,Grimshaw and Sinclair,Knight & Merz?
Currently I visited with my youngest son the “Geneva Motor Show”.
It was an interesting opportunity for me to examine
the sources of inspiration of the Cars industry.
And I learned that it happens in a similar manner like in architecture….
I’ll write a post about it soon….
In this post I’ll check,
Are architects inspired from the fashion world?
I apologize I did not attach a sketch….
Soon I’ll be back from my vacation.

Notice to the recurring themes of the three structures shown in the images above ….their fabric skins wrapped tightly around a metal frame, inspired by the fashion industry Pleats.

Issey Miyake Fashion Designer was born in Hiroshima , Japanin 1938.
Miyake’s basic tenets for making clothes has always been the idea of creating a garment from ‘one piece of cloth’,
And the exploration of the space between the human body and the cloth that covers it.
His approach to design has always been to strike a consistent balance between tradition and innovation, handcrafts and new technology.

Are Issey Miyake’s unique designs
