Techno Textiles

"Techno Textiles"
By Ben Palosaari, City Pages, June 2008

In this brief overview of the current Goldstein exhibition, "Techo Textiles," Ben Palosaari notes how engineers combine technology and textiles to change the way we live and our built environment. As examples, Palosaari points out exercise clothing that have integrated heart-rate monitors and fabric architecture like the Beijing Olympic aquatic center that has a textile membrane exterior.

The "Techno Textiles" exhibition runs through July 17 at the Goldstein in McNeal Hall.
