Origamic Architecture is a paper art form that was created by Masahiro Chatani, a professor at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in the early 1980s. It consists of a paper or card that is cut and folded in such a way that a three dimensional form arises when the card is opened. The design is primarily of buildings, but many other possibilities abound.
