Octopi  2001

As one of the most advanced invertebrates or as a delicious appetizer, everyone loves the octopus. This model was spontaneously invented in response to a challenge at a party. With its rotational symmetry this model is a forerunner to the whole origami from space approach.

Dual Tetrahedron  2001

This fascinating shape can be seen either as a stellated octahedron or two mutually intersecting tetrahedra. This model is a compound, made of four sheets of square paper, each containing one corner of each of two tetrahedrons. Different methods of creating the module render the final shape in similar or contrasting colors. I have been working a version from a single sheet with the color change.

Cuboctahedron  2001

This fourteen-sided Archimedean solid is one of my favorite shapes, and closely related to the Truncated Octahedron, but easier to fold. One of my first successful polyhedra designs.

Icosahedron  2001

Original method for folding the twenty-sided platonic solid from a single rectangular sheet of a 2:1 ratio. My method features good utilization of the paper and optimization for size, a easy and straightforward prefold sequence, and a very secure lock. In general, folding a polyhedron from a 2:1 rectangle is easier than a square and better utilizes the paper. This is because you have more edge relative to area, and you can use something like a Mercator projection for the layout, or a two-hemisphere clamshell arrangement.
