No, I am not weaving a basket, I’m making architecture

So some of you if not all have been commenting on my recent surfaces using weaving, but hey guess what it is not as silly as it may seem.  Kent Suhrbier recommended I look at Shigeru Ban and his works.  So I’m passing it on to all you blogger folk because his work is very creative and uses unusual materials.  So check it out.

    I wasn’t saying it wasn’t architecture, I just like the silly rhyme (a tisket a tasket, dagnabbit!), and I thought it was an interesting system to develop larger architectural forms/spaces with.

    Weaving has long been considered central to architecture. The 19th-century architect Gottfried Semper, whom I mentioned the other day in relation to tectonics, theorized long ago that weaving is at the origin of architecture and space making. See his essay “4 Elements of Architecture” that I referenced, and can be read at: https://www.library.cmu.edu/reserves/hlergutschow156.pdf.
