This Diploma work investigates integrating textile technologies in architecture to create responsive, dynamic spaces. It explores textiles’ role in the architectural fabrication process, utilizing digital tools and additive manufacturing. This involves experimenting with textile flexibility, strength, and its potential as a constructive element through various tests and practical applications. The research is framed within a hybrid theoretical and practice-based approach, pushing the boundaries of traditional architectural methods and concepts. Key case studies include developing permeable structures that adapt to changing environmental and social conditions. The outcome emphasizes textiles not just as materials but as integral, functional elements in building environments that are constantly evolving and adapting.
