Master Seminar Textile Steel

M.Sc. | Winter Semester 2021 - 2022 | LV1720807

Professur Digital Design and Fabrication

Steel is a material that can be recycled without loss of properties, a huge potential for urban mining and the circular economy. Yet, the demand for new steel is higher than the offer of secondary raw material.

Recycling the material of a conventional steel component into a multitude of components with locally tailored material distribution, while delivering the same function and strength as those created by traditional methods, could enable the industry to meet growing global demand.

Based on fabrication concepts from textile technology, we investigate the fabrication of resource-efficient steel components through experimental prototypes made of steel wire and yarn, focusing on hands-on explorations and concept models.
