Academic Building Shoes

Handmade metallic pyramidal shaped boots with reflective effects, 2017.

Inspired by the architecture of RMIT University, Swanston Academic Building, Melbourne, Australia. Designed by the Lyons studio, this building is an architecture that has a metal envelope on its facade. The facade is irregular and is composed of many pyramidal pieces. The architect used a pixelated image to create a color map on the outside; He said that ‘The building derives its identity from its surroundings’, and that this architecture is ‘a chameleon and a mirror’. Due to the material it uses, it generates a reflective effect that changes depending on the colors around the building, giving a very interesting reflective game.
