Atelier Modular is a fashion house that reflects the up and coming industry in the Meat Packing District of the West Loop. Its primary role is a creative space for fashion designers, but can easily be transformed into a dynamic runway, showcasing the progressive fashion. The facade plays a vital role in the conversation by altering the materials and designs of Christian LaCriox into a large scale representation. Its multiple layers provide a transfixing experience during both day and night, illuminating the constant use of the building.
