In the current digital architecture research agenda, surface is investigated as a responsive, adaptive, interactive, and flexible entity. This new kind of surface calibration that accentuates its responsiveness focuses upon a microscopic rearticulating of its texture. Surface texturing towards kinetic behavior and interactivity has revamped the relation between architecture and the ancient craft of textiles. Folding becomes again relevant in the frame of transformable surface tessellations that often reuse and remix standard origami patterns.
