2017 winners

With the 14th Student Competition on ‘Textile Structures for New Building 2017’, Techtextil aims to draw attention to textiles as a building material and promoted the exchange of ideas and information between young academics and the industry.

Students of civil engineering, product design and related disciplines, as well as ‘Young Professionals’, were invited to submit their practice-oriented designs for building with textiles or textile-reinforced materials. The scientific and technical aspects of the competition were the responsibility of Prof Werner Sobek, Director of the Institute for Lightweight Structures and Conceptual Design of the University of Stuttgart (ILEK).

The winners who have been selected by an expert jury shared prize money totalling € 8,000. The award winning designs have been  presented to Techtextil trade visitors and exhibitors at a special exhibition during the fair.

The contest is accompanied and supported by Architonic, ILEK Stuttgart and Tensinet.
