MAS 2009 | Interactive Urban Fabric
[ Student Pages ]
Using the flexibility of specially constructed wires, industrial knitting machines from the german company Stoll are used to form a textile with a preprogrammed pattern. In response to stimulation by an electric current, phosphor material within the wire emits light as current passes through it. The result is a uniquely urban element, which deliberately reacts to movements within its surroundings.
This project was developed and constructed from the students of the Master of Advanced Studies program of CAAD in 08/09. For more details please check out: http://www.mas.caad.arch.ethz.ch/
