Weaving Enclosure. Material computation and novel forms of crafting

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


This paper presents a computationally based methodology arising from the application of weaving techniques for the design and construction of an experimental architectural system, Weaving Enclosure. The research explores the close correspondence between material properties and assembly systems found in the traditional craft of weaving, studied through analytical and laboratory tests, and then implemented through computational design and digital fabrication. The workflow for the generation of specific geometries related to the elastic nature of the material results in the design and fabrication of a self- standing interior partition with digitally conceived patterns, tuned parametrically to provide structural and screening performance.
