Abstract

This paper presents research into textile architecture. Textiles are interesting materials for architecture in that they are lightweight, highly formable at macro scale and highly adaptable at micro scale. This enables designers to work with integrated design systems in which materials are created directly for particular
performances. The paper will discuss methods for scaling textile systems from the tradition of garments and technical textiles to architectural scale. It will reflect on experiences with two central interfaces that allow transfer from one field to the other: pattern creation and predictability. Using examples from CITA’s extensive work with knit, we will discuss our creation of new methods for dynamic relaxation and simulation of knitted textiles.
