Fabric Structures in Architecture covers the varying ways textiles and their properties are used in building construction, with particular focus given to tensile structures. The text begins with the fundamental principles of textiles, including the origins of fabric architecture, then progressing to a discussion of the modern textiles of today. It covers relevant textile materials and their properties, including coatings and membranes. In addition, a range of design considerations are discussed, with detailed information on installation and failure modes. A series of case studies from around the world accompany the discussion, illustrating the applications of textiles in architecture.

- Offers key coverage of the fundamental principles, from the origins of fabric architecture to modern textile- Provides analysis of relevant textile materials and their properties, including coatings and membranes- Contains expert insights in to the applications of textiles in architecture, presenting a series of relevant case-studies from around the world
