    Abstrakt

    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.
    Keywords. Digital design practice; textiles; structural design; material behaviour
