Student*innen der Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences unter der Leitung von Johanna Beuscher und Prof. Claudia Lüling
On the occasion of the Luminale and new developments in the textile industry, a group of students from the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences makes textiles shine. Here, they are investigating the significance of light for the perception of the spatial environment and how pleasantly tactile fabrics can be supplemented by the component of light to give architecture added value in terms of both technology and design.
Resource-saving lightweight construction concepts will also shape the future of the building industry. In Department 1 of FRA-UAS, for some time, research is being conducted on the development of components which, as light and thermal bridge-free elements, offer new and future-oriented options. Textile technologies thus optimized and technically functionalized for architectural applications. The design of intelligent components with passive and active lighting and shading functions is of great climatic and atmospheric significance.
The group is developing robust and simple textile lightweight installations, which are tested in parallel for their feasibility using mockups and functional models on a scale of 1:1. A spatial-atmospheric scenario in the foyer of the Department of Architecture shows the results of the study in the form of an artistic installation.
18 prospective architects of the Master's degree course in architecture at Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences will be devoting themselves to the subject of light and textiles in the seminar „Special Fields of Fabrics", together with Johanna Beuscher as lecturer and Prof. Claudia Lüling as guest critic. Current research activities, Design&Build projects, publications and awards of the Textile Light Weighting Research Group headed by Prof. Lüling can be found online at www.fabricfoam.de The students are: Varvara Agarkova, Rami Bakhos, Nathalio Chahraban, Sophie Duchscherer, Benjamin Ebenig, Vanessa Fischer, Pablo Giovanni, Patrick Heine, Moritz Kleinhenz, Janine Laudan, Ivan Johann Litwitschenko, Diana Meier, Neil Peitz, Victoria Pfeil, Liza Nathalie Schäfer, Mohammad Mahdi Shojaie, Elena Sianavas, Timo Zimmer
