“Origami” is a project try to represent the pattern of a
folding paper. Using Revit as primary tool, the project
explores the way to materialize origami pattern into
building facade while exploring the possibility of using
Revit for parametric design. The digital model we develop
not only represents the origami pattern convincingly, it
also respond to changes such as size and shape.
The family unit and the whole model was developed in
Revit with parameters (formulas) represent the pattern
of a folding paper. The project model built by Revit, has
parameters that fit the origami pattern into all free form
surfaces. The physical model was made by a 3D printed
frame and a real folding paper.
