Fabric formwork, known as the casting concrete with flexible fabric molds, frees the nature of the material, which is fluidity; hence, its tectonics.

This paper by Ayşegül Akçay Kavakoğlu examines the tectonics of concrete and fabric through computational design and analog methods. During this examination, fabrigami technique is used to foresee the intuitive act of concrete within the fabric mold concerning the computational model.

Fabrigami use in fabric formwork allows the emergence of a dynamic fabric mold system revealing form variations.
