I recently had the honor and the pleasure of contributing a chapter on aerospace architecture to this fantastic book, 'Textile Technology and Design: From Interior Space to Outer Space'. I want to thank Deborah Schneiderman and Alexa Griffith Winton for the opportunity to share some of my knowledge in the area of aerospace interior design on this project. They gathered some fantastic writings from some really exceptional contributors on this project and I am truly grateful to have been included. See description of this book below.
Textile Technology and Design addresses the critical role of the interior at the intersection of design and technology, with a range of interdisciplinary arguments by a wide range of contributors: from design practitioners to researchers and scholars to aerospace engineers. Chapters examine the way in which textiles and technology – while seemingly distinct – continually inform each other through their persistent overlapping of interests, and eventually coalesce in the practice of interior design.
Covering all kinds of interiors from domestic (prefabricated kitchens and 3D wallpaper) to extreme (underwater habitats and space stations), it features a variety of critical aspects including pattern and ornament, domestic technologies, craft and the imperfect, gender issues, sound and smart textiles. This book is essential reading for students of textile technology, textile design and interior design.
