A Method for Expandable Regular Tessellation
(Proceedings pages 423–426)
Due to the rapid changes in the activities of modern society,
architecture is in need of adaptable spaces. To meet this need,
architects search to find new ways of producing architecture.
Movement is accepted as the principle concept by some of designers.
They usually reach transformable, deployable or foldable structures
with a particular type of mechanism by using advanced mechanical
knowledge. There is not a method for the designers who know very
little about mechanisms. The main purpose of this study is to develop
a method for the construction of expandable planar surfaces. This
method has been developed from mathematical regular tessellation
technique in the light of architectural, mechanical and mathematical
