Three Innovations Changing the Face and Function of Fabric Architecture
Credits: 1 HSW, 1 LU
Sponsored By: Sefar
Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science
This fascinating course explores three new and innovative architectural products, each made from precision woven architectural fabric: a new exterior fabric membrane that allows for entirely new forms and functionalities in permanent static or kinetic fabric constructions; a new modular ceiling system made from photometrically and acoustically optimized precision fabric; and a new composite facade material made from a combination of glass, fabric and metal. Design and application, and the functional and sustainable benefits provided by each innovation are explored through real-world projects.
