This project investigates varieties of techniques of perfomative folding which will be applied on pop-up architecture.The reason why i want to investigate is folding has both structural and aethestic capacity.

Pop-up architecture has deep architecture quality and it is radical in design even though it is temporary. It gives the oppotunity to apply the techniques of perfomative folding on.

The methods of investigation will be in these aspect: material, physical model, computation simulation, architecture content .
