Book Description
Combining the Japanese arts of origami (folding paper) and kirigami (cutting paper) to create miniature masterpieces replicating the world’s great architecture.

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 20 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, a 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.
