PhD Tectonic Textiles – architectural textiles Textiles that operate at a building scale (Christo) – Textiles principles applied to architecture processes (Nox)
Slow Furl by Mette Ramsgard& Karin Bech, CITA – Lily Pad, washable Arduino board PhD Tectonic Textiles – how the design & use of smart textiles can be conceptualized, probed and implemented in an architectural context?
Research question: How energy-harvesting and self- actuated textiles can encourage a more sustainable home? PhD Tectonic Textiles – exploring the boundaries between textiles & architecture Aurélie Mossé │PhD Fellow │CITA │ Royal Academy of Fines Arts │ Copenhagen │http://www.aureliemosse.com
Questioning ● the role smart textiles can play in a domestic space. ● How they can be implemented in an architectural context to encourage a more sustainable lifestyle? PhD Tectonic Textiles – Aims of the project Aurélie Mossé │PhD Fellow │CITA │ Royal Academy of Fines Arts │ Copenhagen │http://www.aureliemosse.com
1 - Develop tangible scenarios for responsive textile architecture → investigating energy-harvesting and self-actuated surface concepts 2 - Explore the potential of light responsive materials/technologies to challenge the conventional notion of home 3 – Testing the hypothesis through the production of cases studies / probes 4 – Assess the sustainable performance of the probes 5- Proposing innovative solutions about the embedment of energy-harvesting & self- actuating textiles in a domestic context/at architectural scale PhD Tectonic Textiles – Objectives : sustainable living architecture Aurélie Mossé │PhD Fellow │CITA │ Royal Academy of Fines Arts │ Copenhagen │http://www.aureliemosse.com

Context – Home as a territory of investigation aneta grzeszykowska & jan smaga, serie plan
Context – Home : when textiles meet architecture Transportable tent of Nganasan people, Siberia – Bedroom of Loos’ wife Lina, 1903 - View inside a court tent in Tabriz, western Iran, 1302 “the beginning of building coincides with the beginning of textiles […] It is certain that a kind of crude weaving began with the pen, as a means of dividing the “home”, the inner life from the outer life, as a formal construct of the spatial idea. It preceded the simple wall from stone or another material” G.Semper
Do Ho Shu, 348 West 22nd street, Apt A, NY - Joe Berzowska, Skorpion dress – Ellis Ltd, Surgical implant – Maggie Orth Fuzzy Light Switch – BMW, Gina Light Visionary Model – Liquid Armor Context – Home: under-exploited territory for smart textiles
M. Coelho,Sprout 1/0 - Automated technology solutions for houses, K. D.Brandon - R. Wingfield, Buried Light Wallpaper – Interactive Institute Goteborg, Interactive Pillows Context – Smart & responsive : the future of the home?
“ But generally designers have not exploited the aesthetic & poetic dimensions of new materials with the same energy that engineers have exploited their functional possibilities[…] Most work in this area does not encourage poetic and cultural possibilities to converge with practical and technical ones. ” Anthony Dunne –Hertzian Tales Context – Smart & responsive home: the future of the home?
Context – Energy-harvesting materials, towards a more sustainable home? From Nano-architecture.net - Cochran & Wheeler Howes, Grow – Kennedy & Violin, Soft house
Hypothesis so far... Energy-harvesting & self-actuated materials can become the effective technologies that will encourage a more sustainable home
Material Matter – self-actuated materials self-actuated materials Property change materials that operate a transformation in their molecular structure under the effect of an energy input, resulting in a change of behaviour (change of color, shape, elasticity etc) Shape memory alloys – Electro-active polymer, TU Eindhoven – SMP reacting to light – M.Coelho 1 2 3 4
Material Matter – Energy-harvesting materials 1 PowerPlastic®, flexible PV Konarka – 2 Powertex: printing PV cells – 3 Soft house, Kennedy & Violin – 4 DSC, dye-sensitive PV cells by Dyesol & Fraunhofer Institute Energy-harvesting materials Materials with the ability to capture and store energy, among others solar power, thermal energy, wind energy, kinetic energy.
“design as a reflective action [Schoen 83] Rather than thinking problem solving as a process of solving predefined problems with a predefined knowledge set, design as a reflective practice is articulated as a dual mode of reflecting on action through action. As such the methods [will] includes an inherent ability to critically assess and creatively adjust the solution space of the research problem.” Mette Ramsgard – Digital Crafting Research Methodology – practice-based and design approach
