Content

Folding Architecture is an international best seller; it has been running on its 11th reprint selling more than 35.000 copies worldwide.

Folding is a relatively new trend in architecture. It is very playful way of designing, which offers free rein to spontaneity and surprise during the design process. The book Folding Architecture gives insight into the possibilities together with results of the research the architectural faculty of the TU in Delft has conducted into this technique since 2001. The technique of folding in contemporary architecture is vividly illustrated with a survey of much-discussed concepts, projects and buildings in which this technique was applied. Compulsory for every architect wishing to design outside the mainstream. 

Author

Sophia Vyzoviti received her PhD in design methodology as a Greek state scholar at Delft University of Technology, Design Knowledge Systems, where she developed a design tool conditioning the emergence potential of public spaces. In this approach, the appropriation of urban spaces by distinct groups was investigated through empirical research resulting to models of representation, explanation and prescription. Prior to TUDelft, she completed her Master in Architecture at the Berlage Institute after earning a diploma in Architecture from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. She has taught architectural design at University of Cyprus, National University of Singapore and Delft University of Technology.  She actively engages in numerous workshops both as instructor and critic and lectures worldwide

Quote

"Architect Sophia Vyzoviti pushes, cuts, pleats, folds, and shreds the edges of architectural design – to startling effect. Her emphasis on the techniques of handling physical models and materials is refreshing in a world when so many of the Prtizker class seem to work solely in software." -Woody Evans, Assistant Professor, Reference & Instruction Librarian at Zayed University, Dubai, UAE
