DIY Instructions for Beginners ★
As a beginner to pop-ups, the V-fold and box fold techniques are likely to be the ones you will be using most. Here is a list of the most common mechanisms used in pop-up creation: - V-Folds: These can be cut and folded directly into the main piece of card, or can be created by adding an additional section of card for the pop-up shape. V-folds are very versatile and are where, simply enough, a V shape is created with the pop-up section. - Box folds (also called Interval Stands or Layers): These are created with vertical or horizontal folds and cuts in order to produce 3D box shapes. - Mouth folds: Mostly used to create the effect of an opening and closing mouth. - Tabs and Slots: This is a slightly more complicated mechanism which you can add onto a card to produce a sliding movement. - An X Mechanism: Created by cutting slits into two identical shapes so that they may then slot together, and then placing this ‘X’ onto a box mechanism on the base card.

ru_pop_up: Lotus: instruction Так как материал готовился для детского журнала "Оранжевое солнце", то модель была немного упрощена. Точнее, чуток изменила форму пестика, чтобы детишкам было проще вырезать, но на принцип сборки это никак не влияет. Download diagram "Lotus" (17K) 1.

Origamic Architecture: Stunning Sculptures Cut Out of Paper In the Japanese paperfolding art of origami, cutting the paper is frowned upon. But in 1981, Masahiro Chatani, professor of Architecture at Tokyo Institute of Technology proved that papercutting could indeed produce stunning pieces of art. Along with his colleague Keiko Nakazawa, Chatani developed Origamic Architecture, a variation of kirigami (itself a variation of origami where cuts were allowed), where you only needed an X-acto knife and a ruler to create complex 3-dimensional structures out of a single sheet of paper. Origamic Architecture sculptures range from (the relatively simple) geometric patterns to famous buildings' facades. Simple cuts can result in stunning geometric shapes - from Gerry Stormer's gallery (click the artist's name for more): Stairs to Paradise by Gerry Stormer (Photo: Carl Uetz) Diagonal Steps by Gerry Stormer (Photo: Carl Uetz) From the master himself, Masahiro Chatani's origamic architecture creations: By Ingrid Siliakus, based on Escher's Cycle (comparison)

Origamic Architecture, pop-up cards and other kirigami. Origamic architecture (OA) and pop-up cards are a type of kirigami. When compared to paper snowflakes, these paper art forms are like the “extreme sports” of kirigami. Kirigami Cut-Outs Most people will remember kirigami as the paper snowflakes made by school-aged children. However, you can cut paper to form masks, animal silhouettes, logos, and coat-of-arms. If you have the patience and tools, the possibilities are endless. [Photo by Marivi] Origamic Architecture and Pop-Up Cards OA was developed by Masahiro Chatani in the 1980’s (read bio). have published many books on how to make these amazing creations. Most origamic architecture designs are viewed when the paper is open half way (90° angle). Other Paper Arts There are many artists who create dazzling designs by cutting paper. Check out this lampshade made by Peter Ayres. As one might expect, artists who can do one form of paper cutting can usually do the other forms.

Pop-Up Paper Craft Weds Japanese Tradition And Modern Architecture In architectural criticism (mainly from the early '90s), the term “paper architecture” is typically used to disparage architects whose schemes are so unrealistic they’re unbuildable. The phrase is also applied to the emergence of “paperless,” computer-driven design studios. A third, less polemical definition comes from Japan, where a Tokyo Institute of Technology architecture professor named Masahiro Chatani developed a technique for cutting and folding single pieces of paper into elaborate 3-D models, drawing on traditional Japanese card making and pop-up books. Chatani died in 2008, but a number of artists have continued his Origamic work, among them, Dutch artist Ingrid Siliakus. “Working with paper forces me to be humble, since this medium has a character of its own that asks for cooperation,” Siliakus explains on her website. She begins by sketching each layer individually, as you would a drawing. Check out more of her work on her website, or buy it at the Escher in Het Paleis.

Baud and Bui | Origamic Architecture Kirigami Cards for Free ! At the beginning Origamic Architecture is a paper folding and cutting art created in the early 80's by Masahiro Chatani (a Japanese architect). It consists of a simple sheet of paper that the artist cuts and folds to create a pop-up shape as the card is opened. The OA cards frequently represent famous buildings or geometrical figures but there are many other possibilities. M.Chatani and Keiko Nakazawa have published many of early books on this Art.

★ Origamic Architecture Instructions & Free Kirigami Templates ★ Architectural origami is the art of paper cutting to create 3D buildings – from just one sheet of paper! The designs range from the simple to the exceptionally intricate, and the subject matter can be anything from a whole city to a famous landmark or even your own house. This page will focus on 90° pop-up buildings and detailed shapes, where the 3D design emerges and is fully visible when the paper is folded to an angle of 90 degrees. That means that this technique is well suited to making impressive pop-up cards as well – although you won’t be mass producing these for all your colleagues at Christmas (unless you start in January!) Below you will find inspirational examples of origami artist’s work, advice for creating your own artwork, plus free online downloads. If the lines are straight, use a steel ruler alongside your craft knife to get neat, perfectly straight cuts.
