When it came to designing Habitat 67, architect Moshe Safdie turned to the simplest building blocks he could find—Lego. Modular clusters of stark concrete make up the hive-like design of Habitat, which has been a Brutalist mainstay on the Montreal skyline for over half a century. Yet Safdie claims that the smooth finish of the concrete actually suggests a rejection of Brutalism. It is the slight details that make an immense difference.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, twin sisters behind The Row, honed much of their craft through the methods of tailoring they observed on set. The sleight of hand implemented by wardrobe stylists informed the twins’ discerning sensibilities when their label was fledgeling. The Row’s premium textiles and cuts are a testament to the fact that a garment’s form is governed by its material.

To channel one’s surroundings into an elevated outcome is a shared quality of both Habitat 67 and The Row. Where minimalist becomes maximalist. Now available on SSENSE.
