Actuated Textile Hybrids Textile smocking for designing dynamic force equilibria in membrane structures

Millentrup, Viktoria; Thomsen, Mette Ramsgaard; Nicholas, Paul;

:

This paper introduces Actuated Textile Hybrids, and describes the steps needed tosteer the form finding processes necessary for their production. The methodpresented employs an integration of an ``activated'' instead of a pre-stressedtextile membrane to design different stages of force equilibrium within the HybridStructure, and to investigate the potentials of ever flexible shaping of tensileelements. The set-up for the Textile Hybrid consists of three main elements whichare digitally and physically analysed in their inextricable interdependence inforce, form and material. Together, the bending active beam (rod), the textilemembrane and an applied pattern which actively shrinks surface areas of themembrane (activation), create the base for the form finding process.Withadvanced Finite Element Modelling software and the architects resulting abilityto engineer responsive building-systems for a dynamic environment, it is essentialto rethink the construction methods and the building-material of the classicbuilding envelope. This is to not only develop a smartly engineered sustainableskin but also a boundary object which, due to its adaptation, develops thepotential to interconnect with its surrounding to re-establish the relationshipsbetween nature, home and inhabitant.
