For those out there who just saw Marian Bantjes and want more design, check out the FAT talk this Thursday! FAT is featured in the Worlds Away exhibition currently on view at the Walker.
FAT (Fashion Architecture Taste), as its name implies, pushes for a more inclusive architecture that is responsive to contemporary culture. Its quirky, allusive work challenges the profession’s notions of acceptable taste and operates from the premise that architecture is a form of communication and should speak the language of its users. The London-based group, established in 1995, has developed a reputation for making buildings, installations, and interiors that embrace a more populist sensibility found in easily recognizable forms, the use of decoration and ornament, and a vibrant palette of color. FAT’s projects range from the creation of a new “ summer village and hobby park” in a suburb of Rotterdam to the transformation of a former Gothic church into the offices for advertising firm Kassels Kramer in Amsterdam to designs for trailer homes for artists in northern Scotland.
