In 2019, Techtextil – Leading international Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens – is organising the 15th ‘Textile Structures for New Building’ contest. As in the years before the international association TensiNet is supporting the contest as a sponsor with prize money amounting to € 8,000.
The competition will be run under the professional and technical supervision of Prof. Dr. Dr. E.h. Dr. h.c. Werner Sobek, Director of the Institute for Lightweight Structures and Conceptual Design (ILEK), University of Stuttgart. Architonic will medially accompany and support the contest again.
All students and young professionals (born after 1 March 1990) of architecture and civil engineering, product design, or any other relevant subjects, are invited to apply.
This competition is designed to identify innovative thinking and innovative solutions to problems, featuring construction projects capable of concrete realisation which use textiles or textile-reinforced materials.
