This project shows an interdisciplinary cooperation between architect (me) and fashion designers (Jie & Katherine). My role in this project is the parametric design (together with Jie Pei) and modeling of the cloth dummy with a hexagon pattern flowing along the curved body surface, which is 3D printed in full scale. Our complementary and interdisciplinary knowledge and skills give birth to this beautiful art piece, which both fashionably and structurally interesting and meaningful. This work was exhibited in Jill Stuart Gallary in the College of Human Ecology, Cornell University. And a paper named   "The Corset Algorithm" is in the proceeding of International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference.
