The course Self-Shaping Textiles focused on exploring the potential of 3D printing technology in combination with textiles and examined aspects such as performance, modularity and scalability as well as possible applications of textile structures in the architectural context. The design methodology uses the elasticity of the fabrics and their self-forming properties. A modular shading element was developed using 3D printing technology and prototyped in 1:1 scale.

The course was conducted in cooperation with the research project ‘Textile Prototyping Lab’, which included 3D printing workshops in Fab Lab Berlin and Sächsisches Textilforschungsinstitut STFI in Chemnitz, where the large format prototype was produced through 3D printing.

This material experiments are part of the doctoral research “3D Printing on pre-stressed textiles as means of material-informed design strategy for performative building envelopes” by Agata Kycia at the TU Berlin.
