Architect Christian de Portzamparc worked together with local architects DPJ & Partners, to create the Christian Dior Flagship Store, located in Seoul, South Korea. The exterior of the building features a sculptural white facade, that was inspired by the shapes and movement of the fabrics in Dior’s fashion collection.

The fabric inspired facade, was made from large panels of GFRP (glass fiber reinforced panels).

Here are some photos of the forms that were made to create the panels.
