38 In a flexible body, the elasticity of the parts forms a succession of coherent folds, infinitely dividing into increasingly smaller components, as they subdivide into bending movements. ”42 For Deleuze, folding and unfolding does not mean simply a tension-release, like in a spring, or the contraction-dilation that occurs in a liquid, but leads to phases of enveloping-developing, or involution-evolution. 45 Of course, the seventeenth-century theory of preformation and duplication is distant from the theory of twentieth-century epigenetics, but in both 39 Leibniz’s dialogue, Pacidius Philalethi, [1676], C, 614–615; quoted by Deleuze, The Fold, 6.

3/4 (1993) issue of Architectural Design. Our starting point is a well-known story. During the 1990s, while many American architects were reading the English translation of Gilles Deleuze’s study The Fold: Leibniz and the Baroque (1993), Greg Lynn edited an issue of Architectural Design (1993) on the topic of Folding in Architecture. 4 Lynn also thumbed his nose at a series of personalities who were fighting rearguard battles, defending what remained of the idea of Semperian tectonics. Moreover, during the 1990s, new tools for 3-D modeling offered by numerous computer applications (Maya, Form*Z, Rhino) made it possible for architects to literally multiply the folds in their projects.
