Architecture Meets Fashion With Archetype Z Studio’s Jewelry Line

 

San Diego, California – Alia Hasan, founder of Archetype Z Studio, didn’t initially set out to bring Architecture to the scale of jewelry. But that’s exactly what happened with her line of 3D printed geometric cuffs and rings. With faceted surfaces and perforated patterns, the jewelry reveals an architectural aesthetic that reflects her background in architecture. With her Bachelor of Arts degree in Architecture from UC Berkeley and a Masters of Architecture from UCLA, Ms. Hasan developed a strong interest in exploring form, surface and geometry in modern architecture through the use of both 3D modeling and small-scale physical models.
