There has to be a standard architectural name for this, but it escapes me.

multi-leaf door
Explanation:
DESCRIPTION
When rising, the bottom section of the door, hooks the second, this the third and so on until all sections are aligned behind and above the lintel.

This door requires virtually no maintenance because it doesn't have a spring system. It is also a door that can be opened manually or with an electric motor. This type of door can also have glassed openings.

winged door


Explanation:
I just wonder whether you are referring to less technical doors, so there are double winged doors, 3-wing/4-wing doors, etc. I'd opt for multi-winged doors, this depends, of course, on your context, but since you refer to an archictectural setting who knows :-))
