Workshop 5: Textile logic

Workshop: How to brace

Date: Spring semester 2011:  February

The workshop explores textile logics for thinking structural systems. With a focus on self bracing systems, the workshop will investigate how friction based structures can be implemented at architectural scale. Learning from early practitioners such as Shukov and geodetic structures the aim is to explore how these principles can lead to new structural thinking and what the opportunities are for their integration in architectural design practice.
