Felecia Davis


Affiliation:  Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
The School of Architecture and Planning – Design and Computation Group

Felecia Davis is a PhD candidate in the Design and Computation Group at MIT.  She has been trained as an architect at Princeton University, and engineer at Tuft University  and has been exploring intersections between architecture and textiles to design soft buildings that use the pliability of fabrics.  Tents and more recently pneumatic structures, where the fabric is held in tension have a tradition and history within the realm of providing human shelter and creating space.  However, less common are strategies that could use […]
