Silk Dress architecture

This close-up of the construction of the wrapping for a new Neiman Marcus store in Boston was inspired by a silk dress. Neiman’s philosophy is that every store should look completely different from every other of their stores. In line with this, the wrap to this outlet in Boston is made from patches of stainless steel knitted together and is 40 feet high and the length of two football fields. The secret is in the subtle change of colours and the way that they are merged together,which creates the breezy look of a silk skirt. Apparently it’s modeled on a particular dress, one that the architect Howard Elkus of Boston firm Elkus Manfredi once designed for his wife to wear to a music festival in England.
