Origami Tesselations

Student work, second assignment, origami workshop, First year, Architecture & Design, Aalborg University, Spring 2012

The first ten days of February I ran an origami workshop in the BSc2 semester (first year) of the Architecture and Design programme at Aalborg University. This form-making workshop contained three assignments of increasing complexity. First, the students were asked to do folding excercises to acquaint themselves with basic principles of origami tesselations (repetitive structures in folded paper). Second, they  were asked to create architektons (architectural objects, cf. Malevich) with regard to a particular intent (i.e. to cover, to support, to hold, etc.). Third, they were asked to apply origami principles to a sketch model of an architecture or design object (building, furniture, consumer items, etc.).
