Miami Dior Flagship store facade renovation
来自巴黎的barbaritobancel architects受委托为迈阿密的一座Dior旗舰店新增一个立面，而室内是由peter marino设计。该项目旨在创建一个反映Dior形象和身份的建筑表皮，寻找高级女装与建筑碰撞的价值观。在这样的组合中，高级女装是一种不断更新的时尚，而在另一方面，建筑超越了时尚，其形象需要超越流逝的时间，持久地代表Dior的品牌精神。建筑不是风格的选择问题，而是光线、比例和优雅的选择问题。因此，在光线之下，这座白色的雕塑体展示了自身的切割痕迹。高贵而光滑的表皮，是使用了超高密度混凝土和大理石的当代材料建造的，给人以精致的感觉。该项目同时考虑到商业属性，因此建筑摆脱了博物馆或机构的形式，使用了常规的橱窗，对公共空间开放。
paris-basedbarbaritobancel architects was commissioned to add a façade to a dior boutique located in miami, whose interiors were designed by peter marino. the principal stake of the project was to create a skin for the building that would reflect dior’s image and identity, finding values where haute couture and architecture could meet and blend.
from this combination, a duality emerges, linking the haute couture with fashion and with the ephemeral that is constantly in need to renew itself. architecture, on the other hand, transcends fashion and its image needs to outlive times as it goes by, continuing to represent the dior spirit in a lasting manner. more than a question of style, architecture is a question of light, proportion, and elegance. so, under the light, the sculptured white volume reveals its cut.
through large curve movements of white concrete, clear figures of the ‘plisée’ take shape, between which the spaces of the boutique slide in. the nobility of the smooth and delicate surfaces is given by a contemporary material made of ultra high-density concrete and by marble power. the project also takes into consideration its commercial nature as the building aims to move away from an institution or museum form thanks to its generous shop windows that open to the immediate public space. the drawing is influenced by the suggestive references of miami, images of the sun and beaches, along with an idea of dynamism, youth, and contemporary design
