Textile architecture informed by wind

Informed by Wind

This thesis by Erica Horteborn aims to show that the flexibility of the textile material could be better included in the architectural design, allowing it to adapt to forces, such as the wind, and viewing motion as a positive design feature.

Post-forming Composite Morphologies: Materialization and design methods for inducing form through textile material behavior

Composite Morphologies

The research described in this paper by Sean Ahlquist et al. embeds properties of both elastic textile and bending-resistant composites within a single material structure. This is accomplished through a composite forming process.
