The article explores the heritage of textiles in architecture as a medium for a transformative architecture. It explores the means by which textiles act and suggests textiles as a main bearer of spatial imagination and meaning. Here, alternative architectural concepts of transportability, storytelling, propaganda, exoticism and the scenographic are situated and explored, presenting a framework in which transformation and richness are central themes. By presenting a series of studies – The Curtain Projects – the article aims to uphold this broader imagination of how textiles can take a real part in how we think, live and build architecture today.
