Resumé

This paper questions the representational logics of a new class of
digital-material practices incorporating material performance. Presenting the concept
of ‘textile logic’, the paper discusses how computational design tools that allow for a
parametrisation of material behaviour are foregrounding the examination of structural
principles that lie outside traditional compressive logic. By pointing to the structural
thinking of Vladimir Shukhov, Buckminster Fuller and Robert Le Ricolais, as well as
contemporary practitioners such as Cecil Balmond and Peter Testa the paper examines
the precedents for incorporating tensile self-bracing as a structural principle and how
textiles can become a model for architectural design. The paper presents the research by
design enquiry ‘Shadow Play’ examining the involved traditions, methods and material
practices of textile design and the here embedded systems of material specification can be
advantageously ported to digital design.
