Urban Fabric – Fusing Art, Architecture and Innovative Design

10 May 2023 | Sectors | Marine, News

Conceived through a fusion of  art, architecture and innovative design, Urban Fabric is an installation informed by contextual research and a deep-rooted appreciation of the need for sustainable design. 

Urban Fabric re-contextualises the traditional Maltese village core and merges two separate elements – traditional city planning and the Phoenician-Maltese tradition of fabric production and dyeing. The installation uses wood, recycled stone and organic fabric that is sustainable and certified eco-friendly as its main components. This is in accordance with the artists’ ethos of recyclability and eco-consciousness. These components create a ‘street-like’ layout that enables the viewer to interact directly with the installation.

CTP are proud to have provided structural engineering advice for the timber structure.
