Kristin/Parisa “Project 1”

Shown are our final iterations for the ‘pleats, please’ project. The first pattern is a translation of a simple triangular fold. Because of the relationship of the mountain and valley pleats, the design allows for a complete collapse into a one-dimensional plane. The second folding pattern is a derivation of the first; the original triangles are copied and rotated around an axis and repeated.  The nature of the second, more complex, pattern prevents its complete collapse, thus the form is only able to move from a single dimensional plane into the three-dimensional folding pattern.

Kristin, Parisa
