Abstract
This paper presents recent advances in the field of multilayer textile cladding systems with a focus on the latest findings. Primary topics are the special characteristics of textile materials in building envelopes in relation to thermal insulation, vapour issues and changing weather conditions as well as the acoustic evaluation of such ultralight systems, and the ambitious demands of acoustic insulation and spatial acoustics. The results are completed with evaluations to the performance for fire protection and natural lighting.
