INHABITED MEMBRANES CITA STUDIO
This 1 week workshop ‘Inhabited Membranes’ asked us to consider the qualities of a textile architecture. By the given minimal membranes we explored, designed and made our own full scale textile spaces for inhabitation.
The workshop introduced us to digital form finding and dynamic relaxation techniques that allowed us to understand and design the relations between 3-dimensional form and 2-dimensional cutting patterns. Following the semester focus on light, we questioned the way in which membranes could filter light creating a sense of interior. How perforations, reinforcements and layering could support and develop both spatial quality and structural performance.
Each group got a space in the studio to fill out, connected to one another, by the concept of “Exquisite Corps”, our piece had to end in the given circle.
