Origami Architecture: Pagodas

by Vicky on March 8, 2011

It was the week for paper architecture!  After making paper geodesic domes on Wednesday, we made origami pagodas on Saturday at our monthly Origami Cool Zone.

My friend Dawn Jackson suggested this model, and it is a great modular project.  It’s fairly easy, and the units fit together very sturdily to make an elegant structure.  It would be fun to make a set of origami dolls for the Japanese Doll Festival and have this pagoda as a backdrop.

It would also be fun to try making a really big pagoda!  (Hmmmmmm………………..)

Since it’s approaching the time for the Wearin’ o’ the Green, Dawn also taught everyone how to fold an origami shamrock.

This model can also become a four-leaf clover.

As always, everyone had fun learning something new!
