summary The evolution of the architectural surface from a static, fixed geometric assemblage to a responsive, biomimetic aggregate surface will be the topic of this paper. The work exhibited has been developed by the author and his students over the last two years, prompted by an interest in robotics, advanced material assemblies, and biomimetics. The work ranges in scope from digital models and simulations to working prototypes and full-scale habitable constructions. One aspect that serves to unite the emerging body of work may be summarized in the prefix “poly” denoting many, or having more than one state or form. Thus the word Polyform begins to suggest the interplay between biomimesis and adaptive surfaces. A similar term is found in the combination of poly and morph:
