Abstract: In 折りori / tecture: Deployable |Transformable | Responsive, it deals with the questioning of the contemporary architectural approach towards temporary and deployable systems in modern cities such as Singapore. The project is geared towards proposing a set of architectonics, efficient in providing rapid deployment needs. It also expresses suitable spatial qualities, moods and responsiveness towards the immediate environment. In Singapore, the realm of rapid deployable architecture for general usage has been stagnant at the realm of using basic scaffold structure with a canvas sheet stretched over for use as a shelter. This system though hailed as an efficient and effective structure,it has been simply performing the basic need of providing shelter. When used for functions, programmatic needs have to accommodate to the limitations of the structure, limited to the aesthetics that it gives. It also does not respond to the constantly changing environment around it. Functions varying from bazaars, trade fairs, funerals, all employed this same temporary structure technique, which leads to the egrettable standardization of various differing functions. The thesis investigation takes on the track of realizing the possibility of offering new architectonics in a rapidly deployable transformable and responsive architecture. Through using a folded planar material, it transforms into a structural skin component. It can be used as a deployable transformable and environmentallyresponsive architecture. The technical topic concerned would be dealing with appropriate techniques in achieving a large span, folded, deployable, transformable and responsive architecture through the study of origami folding techniques, material panel joints, environmental responsiveness and structural rigidness.
