Folding strategies in architecture have been explored since the 1990s – if not before – as a method to generate spatial and structural concepts by applying complex geometries. These strategies are generally related to an analogue working method that involves paper folded models rather than digital form finding processes.
Against this background this paper by Marco Hemmerling focuses on the impact and possibilities of folding principles from origami for the digital design process in using parametric software to generate integral and adaptive systems within an experimental and intuitive design approach.
