summary This paper outlines the pedagogical issues of design and fabrication of tensile membrane structures. Pedagogy needs to closely follow the nature of structures, materials and fabrication processes. Pedagogy of tensile fabric structures is significantly different from that of the conventional frame and panel (stick-built) structures. To explore the digital design and fabrication of tensile membrane structures, a design/build studio was conducted at the University of Texas at San Antonio. The present paper identifies the peculiarities of this type of project and discusses the pedagogical lessons learned from this design-build studio.
