Abstract : This paper deals with tensegrity systems folding by self stress removal. Two methods are described. Each of them is associated with a basic unit : two way extender on one side, and truss member on the other side. After a description of the folding process for these basic units, the generalization is demonstrated for a flat double layer grid. All the theoretical propositions are validated by physical models.
