Supersurfaces shows the results of the design method introduced by Sophia Vyzoviti in Folding Architecture: Design Through Folding. In the form of a pocket diary, this booklet makes clear how the new technique of folding can be applied not only in architecture, but also in industrial, product or textile manufacture. Vyzoviti uses paper as an empirical model. She investigates and systematically describes how flat paper is transformed into volumes when creating prototypes. The research in this second book goes a step further, using more durable materials but with qualities similar to paper. Supersurfaces is filled with hand-folded, twisted, wound and woven forms. This `other' manner of design is a `low tech-high concept' morphogenetic process, which forms a welcome addition to common design methods with advanced computer programmes. It is an entertaining and inspiring pocket-sized booklet for design students and designers who regard experimentation as an important aspect of their work.
"Soft Shells" focuses on porous and deployable architectural screens creatied by using four basic techniques: cut, pleat, tile, and weave. The projects are beautifully photographed with step-by-step images to explain the design process. This new book by Sofia Vysofiti will be very useful for design courses and workshops.
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.
