Origami${}^6$: II. Technology, Art, Education

Origami${}^6$: II. Technology, Art, Education

is a unique collection of papers illustrating the connections between origami and a wide range of fields. The papers compiled in this two-part set were presented at the 6th International Meeting on Origami Science, Mathematics and Education (10-13 August 2014, Tokyo, Japan). They display the creative melding of origami (or, more broadly, folding) with fields ranging from cell biology to space exploration, from education to kinematics, from abstract mathematical laws to the artistic and aesthetics of sculptural design. This two-part book contains papers accessible to a wide audience, including those interested in art, design, history, and education and researchers interested in the connections between origami and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Part 2 focuses on the connections of origami to education and more applied areas of science: engineering, physics, architecture, industrial design, and other artistic fields that go well beyond the usual folded paper.

Architectural Origami

Create Models of the World's Great Buildings

Architectural Origami

With just a little skill in cutting and folding, you can make perfect miniature paper replicas of great architecture - small enough to fit into an envelope as a greetings card, beautiful enough to put on display. Architectural Origami offers easy-to-use templates for 15 structures, from the Taj Mahal to the Rialto Bridge, all demonstrated by leading architectural origami artists. There are basic principles to start you off and advanced guidance on designing buildings of your own, plus detailed architectural narratives and graphics describing the original buildings. A craft knife, pencil, a ruler and a cutting board are all you need to undertake this intriguing craft. You'll find it as absorbing as drawing and as reflective as origami. When you've absorbed all the basic principles and tried your hand at all the buildings in the book, you'll find that you've learned enough to start you off on designing origami architecture of your own. About the authors Maria Victoria Garrido Bianchini is an origamic architecture designer with a degree in Architecture and Urbanism, whose work has been exhibited in New York. Ingrid Siliakus has been an origamic architecture designer/artist for over ten years. Her work has been displayed in exhibitions all over the world.
