Studying and evaluating retractable mechanism of foldable bar structure is the main focus in this project. This study has been narrowed down to studying theory of foldable bar structure using scissor hinge system. Scissor hinge system is a system which consists of rigid, flat plates, connected by joints, allows relative rotation about one axis. Perhaps, this system could solve the mystery towards convertible structures in Malaysia to suit Malaysia's wet and humid weather. Of course, engineering behaviours and other alternative application/structure would be the main tasks for this project and that will be explained further later in this paper. The main scope of study is study the system and evaluate. The methods of this study are firstly, to collect and read as many reading materials related to retractable structures as possible. Some methods have been modified to suit the progress of this project. This can be found later in methodology chapter. Afterwards, finding the alternative application to use the retractable mechanism onto other structure would be investigated. However, the scope of study may or may not extend to other deliverables, depending on time of progress. On chapter two (2) would tell the basic findings and general concept of the study. Some detail information on Hoberman's Angulated Element also being stated and discussed in this paper.
