M1 "Textile Architekturen"

  Copyright: © Architekturtheorie

M1: 12 credits

+ Supplementary seminar M.Sc.: 3 credits

In cooperation with the Department of Architectural Theory, Prof. Axel Sowa

The focus of the one-semester master project is the relationship between textile art and architecture. Based on flexible substances and their processing in the form of braids and fabrics, we will re-measure the creative possibilities of textile architecture. The world of textile manufacturing is particularly dependent on the dexterity, precision and wealth of experience of craftsmen, whose knowledge and skills form the basis for theories on textile form finding. Part of our historical-critical examination of the design and production of textile architecture is a series of workshops and structural experiments with which we test our hypotheses and designs. As part of the excursion week, we will be guests at the artists' houses in Worpswede and visit the weaving mill in the Haus im Schluh, in whose studios textile production has been practiced as an artistic practice for more than a hundred years.
