Architectures of Weaving reimagines the art of weaving as the combined result of fiber techniques and cultural practice. Addressing today's urgent energetic and environmental challenges, the book explores new approaches for resilient and adaptable material systems by examining the boundaries between softness and rigidity, material and shape, and functionality and structure. With the aim of fostering interdisciplinary research and developing sustainable practices, this thoughtfully designed book assembles contributions by practitioners and theoreticians working in the fields of anthropology, architecture, art, biology, cultural history, design, materials science, and textile technology.
