Wearable Architecture

Lyceum has announced the Winners and Merits to its “Smart Materials: Wearable Architecture” Competition. Students were asked to design a mobile building that is self-sufficient, inhabitable by a single individual or used to create larger environments when colonized.


I quite liked Kazuko Anne Kimura ‘s Colony that drapes a building’s facade with a malleable smart textile that acts as a wall, a furniture for relaxing and a window.

Justine Massonnier‘s proposal got me really intrigued. It’s a kind of poncho full of pockets to insert the basic tools you need for a trip. The garment is decorated with the map of the United States and can be turned into a perfectly discreet bag.


Congrats also to Jerry Sabitini for the suit that gets air-bagged at will.
