Abstract

This paper deals with the development and achievements of structures conformed by concrete folded plates. It explores the origins of its analysis and calculation and shows an overview of the main folded plate structures between 1950 and 1970. Great number of technical articles and publications on folded structures appeared in these two decades, to quickly decline shortly after. At least in a symbolic sense, their end can be certified by a memorable and monographic IASS symposium held in 1970 on such structures. More than four decades after the last of the large-scale structures of this type was erected, a review of achievements and possible causes of decadence seems to be pertinent, furthermore considering the growing and renewed interest in the geometry of folds and facets of the last years.
