Phd Tectonic Textiles

Aurélie Mossé, Constellation Wallpaper, Research artefact for Philips Design, 2007

Aurélie Mossé is currently undertaking an International PhD in Tectonic Textiles within CITA, Centre for IT & Architecture, Copenhagen in collaboration with TFRG, Textiles Futures Research Group, London. The project is fully funded by the Danish Government.

Aurélie’s current research about Energy-harvesting & Self-actuating textiles in the Design of Domestic Spaces is questioning the role smart textiles can play in a domestic context, how they can be implemented to encourage a more sustainable lifestyle. The project will investigate tangible scenarios for responsive textile architecture and will explore how textiles can embed innovative technologies in our interiors, with a specific interest for photovoltaic & responsive textiles. The research process will explore a combination of practice-based and design methodologies to address the potential of these soft technologies for living architectural surfaces.
