“The lower or floor is thus also composed of organic matter. An organism is defined by endogenous folds, while inorganic matter has exogenous folds that are always determined from without or by the surrounding environment. Thus, in the case of living beings, an inner formative fold is transformed through evolution, with the organism’s development… Whether organic or inorganic, matter is all one… (Deleuze)

There exists thus a series of curve sthat not only imply constant parameters for each and every curve…: thefold. Thegoal is nolongerdefinedby an essential form, but reaches a purefunctinality, as ifdeclining a family of curves, framed by parameters, inseparable from a series of possible declensions or from a surface of variable curvature that it is itself describing. (Deleuze)

…The new status of the object no longer refers its conditionto a spatial mold – in other words, to a relation of form-matter – but to a temporal modulation that implies as much the beginnings of a continious variation of matter as a continuous development of form. In modulation “a pause never intervenesfor with drawal from th mold because the circulation of the source of energy amounts to a permanent with drawal; a modulator is a continuous temporal mold… His is not only a temporal but also a qualitative conception of the object, to the extent that… are flexible and taken in modulation. The object here is manneristic, not essentializing: it becomes an event. (Deleuze, 2015)

At the above context, the projects are the productions of architectural design studio-2, that is managed 2015-2016 Fall and Spring Semester in GTU. It is questioned by time-space relationship of biological structures over evolutionary time with body-motion relationship. As a result these relationships are posibilities of the spatial configurations.”
