summary Material translation as a driver of innovation through craft, specifically the translation from machine knitted textiles to 3D rapidly prototyped textiles is discussed in this paper. If architects and designers can develop methods to translate existing textile structures and behaviors, then architects and designers can harness the vast extant knowledge base that goes into the design and fabrication of geometric textile structures and resultant behaviors to develop new materials and tools to construct active building systems that use the pliability of textiles to advantage.
