An enormous, electronically operated umbrella stretches across a courtyard, flexible panels replace solid walls, an air-filled bubble is turned into a performance hall: this volume presents promising projects that envision a future when textiles are widely and innovatively employed as architectural elements.
Though they are frequently reduced to a decorative afterthought in contemporary interior design, textiles are extremely versatile, with a range of tactile qualities and surprising strength, which gives them tremendous architectural potential, ranging from simple solutions to high-tech applications.
Presenting projects by prominent architects such as Rem Koolhaas, Herzog & de Meuron, Kengo Kuma and Graft Architects, this richly illustrated edition – which serves as a resource book as well as a source of inspiration – provides an overview of the wide ranging possibilities for the application of textiles in building design.

Exhibitions

„Textile Architecture“ at Staatliches Textil- und Industriemuseum Augsburg, 2013

The aim of this special exhibition was to show the historical development as well as current architectural projects and textile examples from everyday life in order to make this topic accessible to a broad public. The basis of the exhibition was the book „Textile Architecture“ by Sylvie Krüger, which was published in 2009 by Jovis.
The exhibition was structured in the five construction principles of textile architecture: the curtain, the textile roof, the umbrella, the tent and the bubble.
These design principles were implemented in a spatially tangible way and conveyed the contents by means of texts, images, models, material samples and films.
In addition, visitors were able to find out more about the wide range of textile materials in a material room.
