Abstract Weaving buildings? Crocheting a room? Is it possible with the technological breakthroughs in hybrid or composite materials that we may be able to reconsider the construction of space and how woven and nonwoven techniques could be used to deal with form and function? In order to innovate with this relationship, links need to be made between the parallel worlds of textile design and architecture. Each discipline looks to the other for conceptual inspiration but until now does not converse in order to pursue large possibilities. If the material breakthroughs allow for textile design to function at the scale of a building then terms such as twill, sateen, and plain weave could be added to beam, column and slab.
