Architecture, which can be loosely described as the art of designing buildings and origami is the art of folding paper to make intriguing forms. We have always had a fascination with architectural examples like these beautiful castles around the world. Or when you appreciate art and enjoy these cityscapes in the form of urban sketches, you often wish you had the wherewithal to reproduce such things. You have all these architectural aspects on the one hand and the origami the interesting art of folding paper to make shapes, on the other.
Often you may have wished that you could be able to meld the two and create some form of architecture on a small scale and now that is possible. When you combine both, the result is going to be remarkable. This is what origamic architecture is all about. It takes the simple yet so complex art of kirigami (a combination of the craft of paper cutting and origami, the art of folding paper to create things) and enables you to step into the world of architecture without having to actually build.
In fact, with origami architecture, you will be able to create three dimensional buildings that will look so good and if you think you need a lot of art supplies to do this, you would be wrong. The best part is that you will simply need some paper, a craft knife and some scissors, which is something that you will find everywhere. You will feel accomplished and happy when you manage to gain mastery over this art that involves cuts and folds of a piece of paper to create buildings that look really awesome.
The point we are making here is not about making the science and art of architecture seem simple and easy. However, if you always had a leaning towards this, and could not spend the time and resources to master it, then this is the next best thing. The thing is origamic architecture is of such intricate and detailed mastery, that you will soon find yourself getting into it in a big way. If you are wondering what are the uses of what you produce by mastering the art of origamic architecture, we can tell you there are many uses.
Some of the uses of the end product of origamic architecture, include:
Make some interesting decorations for your home: Imagine if you could actually produce a miniature of a building that you particularly admire. Then you could display it on a place of pride for all to see and admire. You can actually keep changing the display, as you will soon be producing many remarkable examples of such work.
Use for making other things: If you manage to make a sturdy sample of such work using origamic architecture, then you can put a light in and use it as a lamp. On the other hand, you can use it to keep other things like supplies and other things.
Popup greeting cards: When there is a festive season around the corner and you feel the need to create personalize greeting cards, having mastery over origamic architecture then making popup cards to distribute can be very easy to do.
