Description of Activity
Architects and Interior Designers enjoy origami because they can produce a huge variety of shapes and forms from only a single sheet of paper. Origami models are very structural and can bend, contract and expand - things that buildings can’t do. Designers can adapt particular elements of paper-folded models to create conceptual designs for spatial and structural ideas.
Watch this short clip showing the role of Origami in helping London Architects Make, design and build prefabricated folding kiosks in Canary Wharf. From design brief to conceptual model, origami was crucial to the Architectural and Design process.
