Event Description

TEXTILE BUILDING SKIN:

Smart textiles in the building envelope

Textile structures and façades have a long tradition in architecture due to their lightweight properties, geometrical flexibility and resource efficiency.

With new developments by combination of different materials within textiles various requirements in the façade can be addressed more decentralized and individually to user needs and/or environmental impact.

The efnMOBILE 2.0 workshop addresses this potential and aims to develop new concepts for textile building skins or textile façade components. Therefore teaching, research and practice will be brought together at the workshop to trigger new concepts to be investigated by architecture/façade design students.

The students shall investigate different main functions to be fulfilled by their façade designs:

With the help of textile materials and special geometries the students shall develop solutions for the case study building at the given location to fulfil one of the below mentioned functions per team.

Functions: Sun-shading – Noise protection – Air cleaning – Media facade

GOAL:

Developing different façade concepts providing solutions for the requirements and functions needed within the case study and in accordance to its location by using smart textile materials and/or constructions.

These results shall also trigger a discussion on smart textile building skins at the ICBEST thanks to the exhibition of the results at the conference.

 

OUTCOME:

Partly functional Mock-Up and a presentation of the façade design (to present at ICBEST and publish in book) by every student team.
