Translating Origami: An investigation on the relationship between origami tessellations and architecture

Abstract [en]

Can we think of the crease patterns of origami as a sort of “architectural” drawings referring to a form?

This thesis is based on an analysis of origami tesellations: studying their crease patterns, folding prototypes, analysing their kinetic properties and creating typologies. It focuses on repetitive three-dimensional folded surfaces and studies the relationship between such compositions and architecture - what do the qualities of origami tessellations mean in the architectural language? The project searches for the architectural potential of such foldings and to test different methods of implementing that potential without forgetting the very definition of origami -the fold.

Translating Origami is also a book that explains the investigation and thoughts that arose during the process chronologically and in more depth.
