When architecture, fashion, and a good cause meet, amazing things can happen: the firm 3D-printed an “H-line hat” in support of the NY “Friends of the High Line” events.

The 23 city-block long high line may have not become an icon of public park in New York if not for “Friends of the High Line”. Formed in 1999 by community residents of Manhattan’s West Side, the organization aimed to preserve and transform an historic elevated railway under threat of demolition. Today, over 7 million visitors come to the park every year, and  organization continues with its efforts putting together more than 450 public programs and activities. “Friends of the High Ling” will host a special event on June 14th.

To this occasion, where guests are invited to don their creativity through a hat themed dress code, Zaha Hadid architects has created the 3D printed “H-line hat”. The design echos the fluidity of the steel facade of recently finished ZHA’s residential project in New York, creating a powerful dynamic. We can only wonder, if this foray into architectural-fashion will be continued?

当建筑、时尚和足够好的理由碰撞时,可能会发生令人惊异的事情:为了支持纽约的Friends of the High Line活动,公司创造了3D效果的H-line hat。

如果不是Friends of the High Line,这条23座城市街区可能还没有成为纽约公共公园的标志。该组织由曼哈顿西区社区居民于1999年成立,旨在保护和改造受拆迁威胁的历史悠久的高架铁路。如今,每年有超过700万的游客来到这个公园,同时该组织也在持续努力组织450多个公共项目和活动。Friends of the High Ling也将于6月14日举办一场特别活动。

在这种场合下,Zaha Hadid建筑师们邀请客人通过帽子为主题的服装创作,以创造出了3D效果的H-line hat。该设计效仿了近期在纽约完成的ZHA住宅项目的钢制门面的流动性,创造了强大的动力。我们不得不问,这种进军建筑时尚的尝试会持续下去吗?
