Book Description

1 April 2009

With just a little skill in cutting and folding, you can make perfect miniature paper replicas of great architecture – small enough to fit into an envelope as a greetings card, beautiful enough to put on display. Architectural Origami offers easy-to-use templates for 15 structures, from the Taj Mahal to the Rialto Bridge, all demonstrated by leading architectural origami artists. There are basic principles to start you off and advanced guidance on designing buildings of your own, plus detailed architectural narratives and graphics describing the original buildings.

A craft knife, pencil, a ruler and a cutting board are all you need to undertake this intriguing craft. You’ll find it as absorbing as drawing and as reflective as origami. When you’ve absorbed all the basic principles and tried your hand at all the buildings in the book, you’ll find that you’ve learned enough to start you off on designing origami architecture of your own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paper Models 8 July 2010
Format:Spiral-bound
'Architectural Origami' is a workbook which allows even the newcomer to get a fast and satisfying result. It shows also the difficulty level of each model. All models mentioned in the book have a description how to create the model. So the individual difficulties of the models are no show stoppers. I personally like the possibility to pop up each paper model. In the rear of the book for all paper models there is a master template. All book pages are in a spiral binder, so it is easy to work with the book. Satrt today and have fun with these paper models.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very absorbing and interesting 23 Aug 2011
By Bellart
Format:Spiral-bound
This book gives you really easy designs to follow, and it then depends on your skills with a knife. After trying a couple of the buildings, there is a tendency to improve your skills and accuracy. All the patterns are stunning when done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book 11 Feb 2011
Format:Spiral-bound
I had tried to workout some of the skills and construction needed to make a paper building with not much luck.

This book is fantastic and worth the money if you want to have a go at some interesting paper folding/building making.
The plans and instructions are very informative and easy to follow..
