Mankind & Architecture
Weaving, one of the oldest cultural techniques known to man, is of outstanding importance to architecture. This special association was recognized long ago by the German architect and theoretician Gottfried Semper (1805–1879). Peter Blundell Jones looks at how Semper’s theories on textile architecture have evolved since the mid 19th Century, and at the links existing between weaving and architecture today.
Glass as a structural material
Light and materials are inseparably connected, indeed they actually determine each other: neither is visible to the human eye until the two come together. For this reason, great architects have always also allowed themselves to be directed by the light in the choice of their building materials. They use light to draw out contrasts between different materials and they use materials that allow them to create a very specific distribution of light in a room.
