Architecture By

The greatest minds in architecture can transform a project into something special by embracing its limitations and using them to pursue unconventional aesthetic solutions. Experimenting with fabric is an increasingly popular way of blending a building’s exterior with its environment. Whether its a facade, pavilion, or some sort of temporary structure, the tensile material is a way for architects to have fun with their creations. Below are a few examples of this.
