POSITION STATEMENT

This thesis is committed to propose a new way of using fabric in architecture without peeling of its sensual quality. The process consist of continuous experimentations through physical models. Many divergence emerged during this journey because of the inclusiveness of fabric (materiality), the nature of physical model as a method (methodology), and the insecurity and indecisiveness of myself (authorship). These factors led this project to an ambiguous ending. The final output is a hybird, both a prototype and an installation. For one thing, it represents a light and portable structure with a dynamic spatial system. For another, itself is a installation that visitors to Room318 of knowles building could interact with. Site and Scale would be the next aspect to think in order to find the application of this model in reality if I had more time.
