A certain irony thus persists in folding architecture. In its initial for­ mulation, it comes across as championing the local, the contingent, the material, in a bottom-up sort of way. Recall Lynn's proclamation that, 'If there is a single effect produced in architecture by folding, it will be the ability to integrate unrelated elements within a new continuous mixture' (Lynn 1998a: 101). If we accept Lynn's conclusion that folding architec­ ture should continue its investigations of 'abstract structures' before it seeks 'their translation into architectural form', then this project remains in a rather tOp-down stage where virtual diagrams have yet to actualise as material structures.
