Abstract
The fabric of the city.

A folded roof plane.

Textile brick.

The density of a weave.

A fabric's structure.

A hem's meter.

The selvage.

The fringe.

Weaving.

The connections drawn between textiles and architecture are limitless.

Can a building and the processes that occur within it stitch together the holes in a city?

The project explores the relationship between weaving and architecture. Can all aspects of the building - from spatial sequences and circulation to structure and skin - be woven?
