Fabric constructions are one of the oldest methods of human dwelling construction and in recent years material advances have begun to see them deployed for many new purposes. These structures now exist in places as diverse as Alaska and the tropics. Whilst thermal qualities of the materials themselves do not pose any insurmountable problems for architects and construction engineers, they are increasingly being employed in types of building where temperatures are a practical issue for building users, or are problematic because they cross the line into new building regulation classifications.
