FABRIC INVESTIGATIONS

A CATALOGUE OF MODELS AND EXPERIMENTS FOR URBAN HALLMARK[ET]


Duration: January - May 2012
Status: Thesis | Model research
Author: Stefan Svedberg
Supervisor: Daniel Norell
Studio: Matter Space Structure
Institution: Chalmers Univesity of Technology


Investigation:
The central focus of the Urban Hallmark[et] project has been the research of long span roofs and the use of fabrics as a means of generating design articulations. The generation of these articulations are derived from the fabric's own physical properties. An extensive series of tests have been carried out in order to study behaviours and qualities in the fabric that incorporate a greater structural complexity with the creation of geometric events to enhance aesthetic variation. These have been carried out through both analogue and digital mediums in a process of testing and rationalisation.
