Our work on the concept of fold is one of the lines of work we have developed from the most theoretical postulates to its construction as a generator of space.

The analysis of each item starts with what we call a base-fold [which contains all of its required DNA], that generates a new individual process, defining a line of work with an identity and language of its own, and even a unique spatial quality that is enhanced by its relationship with light, orientation or location. From this starting point, many of the pieces are prone to a specific location or a specific time; bringing out variables from the context which we sometimes only discover later on. These processes are not linear, since each step has a permanent effect on the rest.
