"Textile Structures for New Building 2017" Contest

"Textile Structures for New Building 2017" Contest

In 2017, Techtextil – Leading international Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens- is organising the 14 `Textile Structures for New Building´ contest. As in the years before the international association TensiNet is supporting the contest as a sponsor with prize money amounting to 8000.

We cordially invite all students and young professionals (born after 1 March 1988) of architecture and civil engineering, product design, or any other relevant subjects, to apply.

This competition is designed to identify innovative thinking and innovative solution to problems, featuring construction projects capable of concrete realization which use textiles or textile-reinforced materials. A further aim is to encourage students and new entrants to the professions. The competition is intended to strengthen contracts between the younger generation, the technical-textiles industry, the universities and broad section of the building industry.

For further information and for registration please visit our website On request, we will gladly provide you with a poster of the 14 Techtextil student competition- digital or printed.
