Folding A much more familiar process of developing two-dimensional surfaces into three-dimensional forms is that of folding. In addition to articulating flat sheet materials into formal propositions, folding has rich potential for defining structural geometry. Through folding, the self-supporting effective span and rigidity of sheet materials may increase substantially, offering further design developments. In comparison to contouring, folding is very economical in material terms. Already an engaging method of exploring design ideas at various scales, digital fabrication has afforded even further experimentation with this material operation.

ABSTRACT In recent years, folding techniques are widely used by many architects to make 3D forms from 2D sheets as an inspiration for their design, which enables simpler and more intuitive solutions for architectural realization.

This research provides an overview of using folding techniques in architecture design, with an emphasis on their new applications. In this overview, we classify folding techniques as computation geometry folding techniques and manual folding techniques. Finally, we provide recommendations for future development.

Introduction Folding techniques, also known as origami, the generic term for paper folding, have been applied to many fields, such as in material research [1], robot structure [2] [3], electric devices [4] and architecture design [5].

Folding techniques are popular in architecture design mainly for two reasons, possessing creative architectural structure with advantageous load-carrying capabilities and generating esthetic and deployable architectural form [6]. The two parts are extremely important in architecture design, especially for innovative design theory.

Because of these positive findings, a number studies investigated the specific applications of folding techniques in building design and summarized them in a brief review. However, these studies are overly specific and practical. On this background, this study aims to present a general review on folding techniques in architecture design and provide recommendations for future development. Research Method 3.

Contents of Folding Techniques 3. Manual Folding Techniques Jackson [11] is one of the first researchers to try to systematically introduce manual folding techniques for designers.

Folding Architecture: Spatial, Structural and Organizational Diagrams by Sophia Vyzoviti

In his works, over 70 techniques explained by clear step by step drawings, crease-pattern drawings, and specially commissioned photography. Rigid Folding Rigid folding is when all the deformation is concentrated in the hinges and the faces between the folds remain flat [7]. For architectural considerations, standard plane materials are important and effective.

Hence during the procedure of rigid folding, the feature that all single parts stay flat makes it crucial for designers to investigate.

Figure 1 shows a lampshade using rigid folding techniques. Curved Folding Curved folding is when the fold line is curved, which is more general and complex than rigid folding. Actually, during the procedure of curved folding, both the fold line and faces between the folds change their curvature, which makes it difficult to use geometric method to describe curved folding [12]. Hence Duncan and Duncan [13] presented a new description of curved folding where local relations between the curvatures of each sides of the fold and the curvature of the fold line itself are provided.

Figure 2 shows an example of curved folding.

Inspired by it, many computational geometers became interested in folding problems and computational origami, their works concentrate on piecewise linear structures [15] and curved folding structures [16]. Applications of Folding Techniques in Architecture Design As folding is comparatively simple and quick process to achieve three dimensional shapes, it inspired many architects for designing from wide roofing to anomalous architectural structure [17] [18] [19].

In addition, with the combination of parametric graphical tools, folding techniques accelerate the design cycle significantly.
