Pliable explores the material application and assembly potentials of textiles in architectural design; aiming to discover alternative influences that shape current disciplinary sensibilities. The spring 2023 course is organized by two components that engage specific theoretical and technical issues of textiles in contemporary architecture: (1) presentation prompts, case studies, and readings that historically situate textiles in architecture, representation, and culture, and (2) an intensive workshop format that requires students to design and fabricate modest–sized textile enclosures, while positing contemporary claims about architecture. 


Open to architecture students only, juniors and above. Space is limited and registration does not guarantee a space in this course. The final roster is formulated on the first day of class by the instructor.
