The Venice Cathedral of Craft
The Venice Cathedral of Craft was a proposal for a dramatic building by the Rialto Bridge in Venice housing an atelier for the Italian fashion house of Valentino. The building was a culmination of a year long study into the design potential of a tailored fabric cast architecture. The proposal involved the selective preservation of a classical palazzo on-site and the insertion of fabric cast elements to create a series of cathedral-like spaces celebrating the architecture and the craft of Venice.
