Abstract
A novel and efficient approach to the design of foldable architectural structures based on rigid Origami is here proposed to obtain lightweight constructions. This kind of structures are made by rigid thin plates, easily assembled and transportable. In particular, a composed Origami in-plane structure is developed, testing two different typology of folding solutions. The model has been developed by applying parametric design, which allows to vary the geometric parameters to assess the sensitivity of the structural response, with the aim of finding the best structural morphology. Manufacturing issues have been integrated in this process to develop a feasible construction. Thin panels of composite material Hyliteョ have been considered as particularly interesting to develop a model in which panel's core material can provide a hinge function, suitable to be used for deployable structures.
