Beskrivelse

The seminar examines the use of fibre based materials in architecture. During the last decade textiles and fibre-based materials have undergone dramatic development resulting in their use and implementation in host of new contexts. From the extreme scales of geo-textiles to the minute details of bio-textiles, textiles are entering new fields of fabrication hybridising existing technologies and inventing new. At the same time, developments in polymers and reinforcing materials are leading to new opportunities for computational design and processing methods for fibre reinforced composites, which in turn provide designers with new means of engagement and control.
