Undergrads Structures study- Winter 2012
Rhino - Autocad - Keyshot - Laser Cutting
This origami shelter project explores the idea of turning patterns into functional structures. The proposal focused on the art of origami, creating a shelter that can be folded and assembled using paper. The biggest challenge was figuring out how to design the individual faces so that they could be folded together to create a dome shape. After many iterations and trial and error, the design began to take shape as a functioning foldable assembly. The result is a lightweight, portable shelter that can be easily assembled in a matter of minutes. This project has demonstrated the potential of combining art and design to create innovative solutions to real-world problems.
With an infinite number of positions from completely flat to completely folded, these origami patterns describe a wide spectrum of dynamic configurations
