origami architecture

origami architecture (OA) is the art of making pop-up cards by cutting and folding paper. It transforms a three-dimensional object to a two-dimensional pattern and back to a three-dimensional object again.
It was invented by a Japanese architecture professor, Masahiro Chatani, in 1980. The first origami architecture card he designed was a New Year card for his friends. He later uses origami architecture to promote architecture and its related issues to the general public. His works have been exhibited internationally, including at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York.
