Designer Julia Körner to explore connections between fashion design and architecture
On December 15th at 6 pm, the Open Lecture Series of the architecture faculty will be happy to present designer Julia Körner (Austria/USA). In Tallinn, Körner will share insight into digital design processes and emergent technologies within a series of projects across various scales, including her recent collaborations with Haute Couture Fashion Houses for Paris Fashion weeks.
Open Lectures are open to all architecture students, professionals and general audience intrigued by spatial matters: the lectures are in English and free of charge: this particular lecture will be especially interesting also for design and fashion design students and professionals.
Julia Körner (b.1984) is founder and principal of JK Design GmbH based in Salzburg, Austria, and holds a lecturer position at the University of California, Los Angeles. She works at the convergence of fashion design, architecture, and industrial design specialising in additive manufacturing and robotic technology. Her work stands out, recognised today at the top level of these disciplines, and has been featured in National Geographic Magazine, at Venice Biennale, Paris Haute Couture and institutions such as MAK Vienna, Belvedere Vienna, FRAC Centre Orleans, BOZAR Brussels and Art Institute of Chicago to name a few. In 2014 she won the Global 3d PrintShow Award in the category “Rising Star”. The constantly intriguing aspect of Julia’s work is the embodiment of a beautiful organic aesthetic.
Born in Salzburg, Austria, she holds a Master of Architecture with distinction from the University of Applied Arts, Vienna. Further, she was awarded a Master of Science in emergent technologies and design from the Architectural Association, London. Julia worked with international offices in both New York and London, including Ross Lovegrove Studio.
