Horizontal Folds

Horizontal Folds

As an operational tool in Architecture “the Fold” is explored throughout the notion of self-analogy and likeness, which implies repetition, and also as self-interruption-the fold within a fold-which in turn manifests itself as a continuous discontinuity. With the first notion, “the Fold” creates an architectural discourse enriched with philosophical and morphological characteristics whereas in the notion of continuous discontinuity it adheres to more mathematical characteristics introducing movement and strata. In the particular project, “the Fold” is used as an operational and expressive tool to create a continuous facade connecting the 3 buildings, with a rather generic massing, in a seamless whole.
