Fabric Architecture Specifier's Guide 2019 - 6

INTRODUCTION

Stopping solar rays
from entering a
building is the most
effective and costeffective means of
reducing building
energy heat gain,
thus reducing HVAC
energy loads.

the appearance of a building through
color, 3D digitally-fabricated forms, and
integrated LED lighting or laminated
thin-film photovoltaics.
SHADE AND MORE SHADE
Finally, one of the most important
qualities of architectural fabrics is their
ability to shade buildings, whether
in the form of awnings and canopies,
large-scale shade structures, or building
wraps that envelope entire facades like
the Rice University car park skin, page
14. Scientific studies have proven that
stopping solar rays from entering a
building is the most effective and costeffective means of reducing building
energy heat gain, thus reducing HVAC
energy loads. See all the project case
studies in this guide for their solar
mitigating qualities.

Regardless of the type or scale of
project, I invite you to utilize this guide
as a tool kit to using architectural
fabrics as a wise and sustainable choice.
"Looking back over the last 4,000 years
of architecture," says Goldsmith, "one
can see a clear evolution from the mass
of the pyramids to the membranes of
tomorrow. If the transition of mass
to membrane represents our human
architectural journey," what will be
"the next phase of structural and
material development? Can this linear
progression become one of the keys in
a more sustainable tomorrow?"
Bruce N. Wright, AIA, the former editor of
Fabric Architecture, is a senior instructor of
architecture and construction management
at Dunwoody College of Technology, and a
frequent contributor to Specialty Fabrics Review
and the online journal Advanced Textiles Source.
