Description

This program will provide an overview of the use of fabric as a building material, covering the history of fabric structures, types of fabric structures and materials used in fabric structures, and their benefits. We'll also discuss what to consider when choosing a fabric structure, such as heat affects, light transmission, connections, insulation and sustainability. And we'll look at the advantages fabric offers, such as increased visibility, visual presence on site and from a distance, providing natural light while reducing heat, providing shade and rain protection, and creating an image or impression that highlights the current architecture when it is difficult to create awareness of individuality.
