NEUTRA是一套由建筑师及插画师Francesca Perani设计的55个无性别剪影人素材,其初衷是为满足设计者创作更具包容性的效果图。

NEUTRA is a new gallery of 55 gender-fluid cutouts addressing the need for a more inclusive entourages in digital renderings designed by architect/ illustrator Francesca Perani.

While the first set, CALENDAR, openly stands against copyright infringements (characters are still too often borrowed from well-known works of art) and ARCHIFUNKY focuses on skin colour, different ability and a wider gender spectrum, this new NEUTRA collection is a provocative representation of a more gender-fluid society: the new jazzy cutouts are neither male nor female, flaunting eyes, nipples and belly buttons. This set is accompanied by a limited series of 30 printed calendars and a digital free format available on the website.

In her illustrative design work, Perani calls time on the misrepresentation of reality as an unfair, unequally designed space convinced that architecture visualisation narratives need to move away from overused stereotypes. She is an architecture activist and a firm believer in the power of shared creativity thus offering free design tools as an effective instrument to bring about change in the profession, not only in visual renderings but in the mind of those who designed them.
