As an engineer and designer, I have always been particularly interested in Modular Origami. Modular origami has intrigued me for its beautiful, abstract aesthetics, but for also its traits of being repetitive and functional. Usually, modular origami is comprised of many small pieces of paper (folded in the exact same manner), and then are combined together (like a puzzle) to form a single structure without the use of glue or tape. This is especially interesting to me because each fold and change done to a single sheet of paper has a specific function and that contributes to creating the whole structure. The act of making the individual pieces and difficulty of combining them are a challenge I embrace.
Below are a few of my favorite and most challenging modular origami pieces I have done. I hope you enjoy looking at them.
