Three Innovations: Changing the Face and Function of Fabric Architecture

This course is no longer active. AEC Daily will not report completion information for this course.

Description: A new generation of precision woven fabrics is being introduced to the architectural community. This course explores a new form of exterior fabric membrane that allows for entirely new forms and functionalities in permanent static or kinetic fabric constructions; a VOC-free 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 to reduce solar gain, glare, and improve interior environments. Design and application possibilities and the functional and sustainable benefits provided by each innovation are explored through video and photographic documentation of exemplary real-world projects incorporating the products.
