Project Summary

Re-Made Fabric

Garment district intervention

This project investigates relationships in between producer and consumer nations in the global garment industry.

The project seeks to enable a shift from mass production industries to micro and small enterprises, with workshops distributed throughout cities rather than isolated factory compounds on the periphery of metropolitan centers.
