Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising by Clive Wilkinson

As promised, here is the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles designed by Clive Wilkinson Architects. The space provide a unique combination of self-focused work areas that support computer-aided, as well as manually produced student design work.

Clive Wilkinson Architects created three mezzanine structures that extended the collaborative space program and dramatized the interior. There is a raised “pool” platform where students can relax and work on laptop equipped loungers.

The space is just great! I’m sure it’s really nice to learn about fashion is such a fashionable space.

  1. I wish my school looked like this when I was studying. It’s way more conducive to creativity than the generic and depressing rooms and it actually makes you want to stay in school! That’s the power of design πŸ™‚

  2. I think I saw this in Laguna Beach. hehe Love this school environment!! πŸ™‚
