||Fibre Configurations for Moisture Control: A Vernacular Framework
||This research describes a theoretical framework for making water-sensitive architectural fabrics based on an examination of the subtle moisture controls in vernacular architecture. It explores a workflow for the articulation of environmental forces in material microstructure and how these can be amplified at an architectural scale. The interaction between moisture and material properties is modeled using physics simulations in Processing, offering a method to manipulate fibre configurations for new construction logics. The research is illustrated through parallel explorations in computationally generated fibre configurations and multi-scalar textile prototypes. The research aims to demonstrate the potentials of technology transfer from traditional knowledge to contemporary material manipulations.
