Wood becomes textile. BAU KUNST ERFINDEN initiates the interdisciplinary research project TETHOK with 6 partners.The group develops textile tectonics for wood construction. We investigate the design, shaping, simulation, manufacture, and construction of lightweight load-bearing structural components made of wood-based continuous-fiber textiles. Wood is one of humanity’s oldest construction materials, with enormous technological, aesthetic, and ecological potential. Demand for wood construction is growing as well, due to its exceptional environmental performance and natural structural qualities, and yet to our knowledge, a wood-based continuous fiber – combining the advantages of textile structural elements with those of wood – does not yet exist.
