Folded Paper Art Structures

This post isnt so much about the sumptuous art of origami, but rather the more mathematical paper folding into more structural/architectural structures. This post just presents a few that I ran into of late that are interesting in some way, there is something pristine about the idea of folded paper structures.


Hydro-Fold by Christophe Guberan is a rather clever way of generating the folds using a modified inkjet printer. The DeZeen article has more images and the video.


Richard Sweeney has a whole raft of forms in paper from various exhibitions that truly elevate the idea into art. All these pieces have a lovely interplay between the 2D of the paper and complexity of the final 3D form.

We can also go back to the work of Ron Resch back in the 1960s and 70s who did great work in exploring this concept of tessellated sheets. See the Arkinet blog post for more info.

Lastly, the work of Goran Konjevod whos organic paper forms have a nice almost scaly appearance because of the pleating method he uses.
