Despite the modest size of the awards and high entry fees, the competition “FASHION MUSEUM IN OMOTESANDO STREET” gathered a surprising number of international entries showing high level of creativeness. Here is one of the proposals by Konrad Sienkiewicz and Adriana Koluszko of cre8architecture. We 100 percent love their concept!
Le Mannequin by cre8architecture
Le Mannequin stands in Omotesando Street – a new landmark on this iconic promenade. The alabaster facade draped in a black concrete robe unveils itself to its audience – invites the visitor to cross a bottom lit cat-walk within a large entrance atrium space that respects the scale of the existing Omotesando Street buildings.
The 20’s – 60’s exhibition spaces tumble over each other allowing glimpses into and from adjoining genres.
The runway space articulates the building form between the 60’s and 70’s spaces and provides an exhilarating skyline to the street.
The crimson spine – zipping the fabric of the building together allows visitors to meander between spaces whilst high speed 3D dynamic lifts whisk you up to the rooftop Japanese garden and sky bar.
