Abstract

This paper addresses a creative multidisciplinary project relevant to making programmable textile
called Flexible Textile Structures through the lens of bio-inspired design, with the goal of fostering
innovation and excellence in rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing. Flexible Textile Structures
explored the reciprocal relationships among design, science, and technology across scales and
appraised a wide range of aspects from visualization, fabrication, material ecology, architecture, to
interaction and performance. Here, the focus was on conducting a clear line of design research in a
school of design that supports creativity while also addressing the relationships between the new
generation of textile developments and their shaping processes in the production of form through
“form finding” exercises in 3D printing.

Keywords: Additive manufacturing, Flexible Textile Structure, Programmable Material, Multidisciplinary.
