Knit-scapes

Students: Mehrzad Rafeei, Somayyeh Ramezani, Sean Markle, Jacques Lesec, Eric Wisarut
Seminar Title: Textile Tectonics
Instructor: Marcelo Spina

The focus of this process uses tensioned carbon fiber tow strands as a flexible framework woven through the knitted aramid fiber. This combination allows the resulting form to be shaped by the forces applied to the framework rather than the traditional lay-up/molding method.
