Soft Shells is a follow-up title to Sophia Vyzoviti’s bestselling books, Folding Architecture and Supersurfaces.

Where Folding Architecture explored folding as a design method in architecture, and Supersurfaces showed experiments in a fusion design field between product design, fashion and architecture, the new Soft Shells investigates textile as a retro-novel architectural device which is porous and deployable.

The booklet is lavishly illustrated with form experiments and has three essays that provide the reader with a state-of-the-art context for the architectural discourse on formgenerative surface.
