About the Book
Tailored Fabric Formwork provides a new language and paradigm for the understanding and manipulation of innovative formwork methods. It offers an innovative response to building element creation combining knowledge from architecture, engineering, and the fashion and textile industries. The research applies tailoring and fabric manipulation techniques to sculpt architectural column prototypes from concrete cast in a flexible fabric formwork. These deliver form and material efficiency for creating refined non-orthogonal forms for concrete architectural elements. The work adds a new dimension to the discourse on flexible fabric formworks.
