Abstract

The fabric of the city.

A folded roof plane. Textile brick. The density of a weave. A fabric's structure. A hem's meter. The selvage. The fringe. Weaving.

The connections drawn between textiles and architecture are limitless.

Can a building and the processes that occur within it stitch together the holes in a city?

The project explores the relationship between weaving and architecture. Can all aspects of the building - from spatial sequences and circulation to structure and skin - be woven?
