Product Description


"In a successful mix, the magazine offers topical debatesthat may inspire textile engineers and designers to greater efforts " -- Textile Forum, March 2007

From the Back Cover

Focusing on the intersections between textile and architectural design, this title communicates the full range of possibilities for a multidisciplinary design hybrid.It examines the generative set of concepts, forms, patterns, materials, processes, technologies and practices that are driving this cross-fertilisation in contemporary urban and architectural design.Architextiles represents a transition stage in the reorientation of spatial design towards a more networked, dynamic, interactive, multifunctional and communicative state.The paradigms of fashion and textile design, with their unique, accelerated aesthetics and ability to embody a burgeoning, composite and complex range of properties such as lightness, flow, flexibility, surface, complexity and movement have a natural affinity with architecture's shifts towards a more liquid state.The preoccupation with textiles in architecture challenges traditional perceptions and practices in interior, architectural, urban, landscape and fashion design.Interweaving new designs and speculative projects for the future, Architextiles brings together architects, designers, engineers, technologists, theorists and material researchers to unravel these new methodologies of fabricating space.It features interviews with Will Alsop, Dominique Perrault and Lars Spuybroek, as well as contributions from Nigel Coates, Robert Kronenburg, Matilda McQuaid, Dagmar Richter, Peter Testa and Bradley Quinn.It also encompasses new projects and writings from young and emerging designers and theorists.
