Tolya Stonorov Publishes FABRIC[ated]
FABRIC[ated]: Fabric Innovation and Material Responsibility in Architecture, edited by Tolya Stonorov, this book explores the ways in which research and development of fabric can, and historically has, influenced and revolutionized architecture, teaching and design. Responsive, flexible, impermanent, fluid and adaptive—fabric interacts with, and influences architecture, offering innovative solutions and increased material responsibility. Foundation and theory chapters establish clear precedent and futures for fabric’s position in architectural discourse. FABRIC[ated] features writing by AIA Vermont President, Eleanor D'aponte, AIA, among others. Order a copy here.
