WP 2 – TEXTILE THINKING FOR ADAPTIVE AND RESPONSIVE ARCHITECTURE – THE SCALE OF THE BUILDING

This programme examines the largest-scale engagement of the research cluster. Using textiles as a material for adaptive and responsive architecture, the aim is to consider the structural, material and interactive complexities of the field and to further develop textile thinking in the field of architecture. The programme involves five ESRs, each with their own research project addressing one of the following three research topics:

2.1  Textile structures for adaptive and responsive architecture (textile architecture – 2 ESRs: Daniel Suarez, Iva Resetar, Berlin University of the Arts)

2.2 Designing adaptive and responsive textiles (textile and fashion design – 2 ESRs: Marina Castan Cabrero,  Royal College of Art, Jyoti Kapur, University of Borås)

2.3 Designing for adaptive and responsive far-field interactions (textile interaction design – 1 ESR: Bastian Beyer, Royal College of Art)

WP leader: The Berlin University of the Arts

 

WP 3 – TEXTILE THINKING FOR ADAPTIVE AND RESPONSIVE INTERIOR DESIGN – THE SCALE OF THE INTERIOR

The programme examines the middle scale of the research cluster, and, using textiles as spatial dividers, looks at the spatial functions, the decorative potentials, and the interactive relationships these textiles can embody. The programme involves five ESRs, each with their own project addressing one of the following research topics:

3.1 Textile structures for adaptive and responsive interiors (textile design – 2 ESRs: Ana Pineyro, Royal College of Art, Svenja Keune, University of Borås/AB Ludvig Svensson)

3.2  Designing bespoke textiles for interior performance (textile and fashion design – 2 ESRs: Sara Lundberg, Juste Peciulyte, Vilnius Academy of Arts)

3.3  Designing for adaptive and responsive near-field interactions (textile interaction design –1 ESR: Ramyah Gowrishankar, Berlin University of the Arts)

WP leader: Royal College of Art

 

WP 4 – TEXTILE THINKING FOR THE DESIGN OF ADAPTIVE AND RESPONSIVE WEARABLES – THE SCALE OF THE BODY

This programme examines the scale of the body through experimental explorations guided by the development of textile thinking in wearable design. The programme involves five ESRs, each with their own project addressing one of the following research topics:

4.1 Textile structures for adaptive and responsive clothing  (textile design – 2 ESRs: Marion BertinMila Svechtarova, Heriot-Watt University)

4.2 Designing adaptive and responsive clothing (fashion design – 2 ESRs: Troy Nachtigall, Eindhoven University of Technology, Vidmina Stasiulyte, University of Borås)

4.3 Designing for adaptive and responsive wearable interactions (textile interaction design – 1 ESR: Angella Mackey, Eindhoven University of Technology/Philips

WP leader: University of Borås
