PROJECT SUMMARY

Re-Made Fabric

Garment district intervention

This project investigates relationships in between producer and consumer nations in the global garment industry. Potential architectural interventions aim to improve working conditions and eliminate practices of labor exploitation. 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.
