||Telephoning Textiles: Networked Soft Architectures
||A textile receives a telephone call from a mobile telephone. This wearable textile is an innovative example of inter-layering and weaving together materials to make a composite soft material that can receive calls from mobile telephones. If a textile can be designed as a wearable shirt, as demonstrated in this paper, then many of these same fabrication techniques can be integrated into soft architecture at a scale large enough to shelter people. This project demonstrates networked soft materials; the project develops the concept of soft architecture and presents a new framework for building integrated architectural systems.
