origami pavillon.
martin gropius bau berlin

derived from the ancient art of origami.

the beauty of the design is found in the ability of the singular, fragile squares to coalesce to form a solid shell; the end result is a shelter for passers-by.

as sunlight penetrates the individual components of the design in a unique and ever-changing fashion, the structure teems with life, almost as if alive.
