Deployable Structures

Author(s): Esther Rivas Adrover

design & construction

Deployable structures are structures that can undergo major changes to their configuration through expansion, unfolding and other means. In architecture, they can be used to create more flexible spaces or building elements that can adapt to changing functions or requirements. This book looks at the cutting edge of the subject, examining the different types of deployable structure, their materials and their properties. It also examines a variety of ways that such structures can be designed, drawing on natural processes and paper folding techniques. Filled with photographs, models, drawings and diagrams, the book is packed with inspirational ideas for architecture students and practitioners.
