Fabric Flux

Fabric Flux explores temporary habitation in an extreme climate, using one of the most abundant resources of the region - water. Molding an elastic nylon fabric using nine control points, it shapes optimal parametric geometries of tensile structures that shelter from wind and snow. The crystallization process of water when sub-zero temperatures occur, drastically changes the fabrics properties. Here, the elastic fabric crystallizes into a self-supporting textile membrane, instantly !
