Additional Information:Refereed conference paper. 'Machinery for Textiles' was given at the Textile Institute 83rd World Conference - Quality Textiles for Quality Life Shanghai Mart, Shanghai, China: 23�27 May 2004. Stoyel's research has explored the wider possibilities of traditional textiles and their relation to new technologies, in particular its use in architectural form. Drawing on work for such architects as Norman Foster, Fitch, Artillery and Andreji Blonski, Stoyel examined the aesthetic and technical values of metal-woven fabric and laser-cut design, often on an epic scale. Stoyel's work in this field led to a Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation award in 2004 to research the practical aspects of Japanese Katagami with a Master Katagami carver and a Winston Churchill Fellowship for research into Japanese Katagami (hand carved stencils) to be undertaken at the Smithsonian Institute, USA. (2006). In 2004 she was a finalist in the International Archive of Women in Architecture Milka Bliznakov Prize. The research was first tested at Decorative Textiles of the New Millennium conference at INTEDEC 2003, Edinburgh, September 2003, and further research was disseminated at the 'The Space Between' conference, Perth Australia, April-June 2004. A practical outcome of this period of research has been an order for 4,300 pieces of cut work for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Stoyel further developed this approach to construction in invited papers delivered at �Designer Meets Technology', Philadelphia University (10-11 May 2004) and Techtextil, Frankfurt, Germany (2005).
