Architecture for Fashion
HOW TO DESIGN THE SPACE TO EMBODY THE BRAND
19th September 2022 / 25th November 2022
Internship at MVRDV, OMA
Architecture is a privileged tool of those brands characterized by an elevated positioning that, beyond the quality of their own products, needs to feed an imaginary of prestige, style, and refinement. From the showrooms to the stores, fashion needs architects as much as stylists, photographers and modelers.
For these reasons, the course Architecture for Fashion has been created, with the aim of training designers able to interpret the identity of a brand and transform it into an architectural space, moving the meanings of exclusivity, luxury, and elegance from the dress to the designated environment to exhibit it. By deepening the needs of the fashion world, students will gain skills that can spend in the field of luxury, becoming familiar with a segment of the market characterized by an eternal charm and continuous rewarding opportunities of application.
Throughout the course, participants will focus on technical and compositive topics at the service of fashion, according to a program made up of 82 hours of lessons, 32 hours of workshop and numerous well-renowned lectures. At the end of the course, YACademy Placement office will guarantee each student a proposal for an internship/collaboration within the partner firms.

DESIGN OF A POP-UP FOR 10 CORSO COMO
The workshop will represent the occasion of practical synthesis to test all the notions available through the other teaching modules, ensuring strategic answers with respect to a real architectural project. The workshop will be held with under the tutorship of David Chipperfield Architects and in collaboration with 10 Corso Como, and it will focus on the design of a pop-up space for the well-renowned Milan concept store. With more than 30 years of history, 10 Corso Como became of one of the most important locations for the international fashion industry, thanks to its integration of fashion, design art and lifestyle that made this brand recognizable all over the world. 10 Corso Como is not - and it never has been – a simple multi-brand storefor the best designers and fashion brands, but it has a strong and marked 90’s visual identity given by Kris Ruhs – who was able to suggestoriginal visual setting-ups. Linked to the stories of the most important protagonist of the Italian fashion sector, 10 Corso Como opens its doors to YACademy’s students and invites them to design pop-up space that can be placed anywhere in the world and is able to bring 10 Corso Como outside of 10 Corso Como. The students will have the opportunity to design elegant andnon-conventional architectural solutions, pop in its ability to become icons in the different international spaces where they are going to locate, but always up to one of the most renowned “concept destination” in the world.
