I am so thankful for your blog... I learned about indoor tensile fabric structures here at textile-blgo.com. I have just completed my 4th indoor installation. I will email photos of my latest indoor exhibit... it is in a food court at a major mall in Denver.

I am a high end exhibit fabricator and I would like to ask the community for a bit of an education.
We are ideating large structures, canopies, columns, enclosures and the like, created with free spanning fabric surfaces.
Where is this technolgy currently at? Are some fabrics better than others? Has anyone experimented with statically or elctrically charged fabrics to get them to act differently than normal? How about size, seaming, and ensioning; have we made any advances there? Who is the cutting edge company working with large scale fabric structures?

Please let me know if there has been any innovative work done in this field as of yet.
Thank you.
Steve
